Mission: To connect businesses with great talent to work without limits.
I have been working at Upwork full-time (More than 3 years)
Fantastic and experience team of dedicated and team-oriented members.
Organization is very compartmentalized. Info not shared well across departments and teams, leading to duplication of efforts and needless 'reinventing the wheel', a waste of time and resources. Technology platform can be challenging/buggy, but is improving.
I applied online. I interviewed at Upwork.
Recruiter contacted me and we had a great conversation about the possibility of 2 different positions she stated I would be a great candidate for. She said she was going to set up the next step for me to meet with the director but completely dropped the ball not only once but twice, not doing anything she said she was going to do, ignoring my reaches out for status updates and failing to communicate properly or professionally. I finally got a "form" letter saying the hiring manager went in another direction. My advice to you is stay in your lane and don't make statements or plans you cannot back up, and learn more about professional communication.
Thanks to The Muse for including Upwork in this roundup of "companies that are going to be huge in the coming years"!
