Upwork is the more effective freelancing site that I have used to secure business. Besides providing a constant stream of willing and able clients for my consulting business, I find that the mechanism that Upwork provides is very fair to all parties.
Upwork provides the "right type" of tools for providing services. The project tracker is great for effortlessly recording and tracking time accurately for all parties. The mutual accountability along with the generous reporting features make Upwork an effective platform for the freelancer to provide services, and the client to secure the best talent.

Upwork is trustworthy and genuinely almost tailor-made for someone like me who moves around. With pragmatic clauses in place to protect both freelancers and clients, I can honestly say that I have complete trust in the platform, and joining the upwork community has been one of the most gratifying decisions I've made in recent years.

I've been a feelancer working with Upwork since 2011 but more actively in the last 5 years. I've been able to get clients from individuals to big enterprises. There is a whole system that protects you, and your client. Of course, you have to start by building trust, so you can find a match that could result into a great deal, and also could be a workrelationship that lasts for years.

Upwork is a great freelancing site, It's rules, policies and terms are in favor of both freelancers and clients in every aspect. I highly recommended Upwork.

I got scammed on Upwork and Upwork is refusing to take any action against the scammer. Upwork is actively harbouring such criminals as long as Upwork gets paid for their part in the scam (Upwork fees). They will go as far as allowing criminals to hide negative feedback.

fees suck, no accountability on the part of the job poster. all their revenue comes from the back of their workers. storage space suck.

When I first entered into this world of freelancing I signed up in several websites. But I've found everything I was looking for in Upwork. It's a great place to find jobs and it has an amazing platform.

I am truthful and honest. never ever use this website for any project. freelancers are very unprofessional and rude. and the main centre of upwork in CA, US +1 (650) 316-7500. didn’t help at all. i will never ever use them and recommend to anybody

Upwork is a great way to meet new clients and grow your network. Working from home has been a game-changer for me and I am glad that I have an opportunity to work from anywhere in the world thanks to Upwork. Easy communication with clients, a variety of job offers and protection of us, who are freelancers, are the most appreciated points of Upwork.

Extra bad for working here . Admin says that if I have more than 1000 usd from one time project I will pay only 10 % fee, but nothing contracts which offer more than 400 bucks. So huge amount of trash bills like 5 busks work, and you need to work a lot to be paid monthly more than 200 usd, but another services can be more effectively for professionals, and less fees, nothing paid connects, and you will not be blocked when not work there . Resuming this- extra bad, like working in trash.

It would be OK except for 20% fees. There's no excuse for this level of greed.

I think it s scamming users. I completed the first project, customer paid and was happy, next thing, upwork banned my account and never allowed me to get my earned money. Asked customer support why the profile was closed, they said it was for my own security, asking for my id and bills. After reviewing all the documentation they requested, closed my account for good. Again, not providing any reasons.
So, in short, upwork stole my earned money, blocked my account with no explanations, their customer support is just playing around while actually not answering to any queries... What a joke.

one of the best freelance sites out there, and i have using it since odesk, scriptlance, elance etc were a thing.
that being said i dont really get the buying connects and all that. seems a bit greedy since upwork already takes a cut of the freelancers money...
Review by Meijian1 month ago
Upwork offers ZERO customer service and will loop you in circles with a robot who isn't even artificially intelligent. It's a much better idea to find the freelancers you want and work outside of Upwork since they offer no human support at all.

I appreciate Upwork for providing good leads .The platform could benefit from an overhaul of navigation and search results. The current user flow could be confusing for even long-time users. I am here if you need a UX expert.

Why Upwork is not suggested for upcoming freelancers?
1. Clients without payment verification and some with payment verification elope with the work submitted and never appear again.
2. Clients are not interactive and believe that a freelancer already knows everything about their project.
3. 20% Upwork fee and OTHER SERVICE FEE that can really hurt the total income from a project.
4. Upwork and PayPal seems to be running a swindle with the charges. [Personally, took $6 for transaction alone after being charged nearly $25 as 20% Upwork free].
5. No free connects are given for "BASIC FREELANCERS" after their initial quota is over. You have to purchase the same for $0.15 each. Most jobs require 4-6 connects. So, a freelancer has to spend nearly a dollar for every bid.
Tears rolled out when I got so much discrimination from Upwork and how they take service charges like they have done the work for us. Truly an unfair affair and I am wondering why any one revolted against them. [And it takes $300 to go legal against them :-)].
P.S. For those who claim that Upwork is the best and freelancers who mock it are unprofessional, I am sure you will get your quota of dishonest answers from Upwork very soon and with it comes a great realization that Upwork is Fwork.
