    Freelancer was a interesting place to work in. They tried their best to look after there employees, by have free lunches and free gym membership, and flexible work hours.

    The only problem was that they kinda treated everyone like cattle if you couldn't produce quality work during your probation period, you'll be let go.

    I have been working at Freelancer full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing working environment in large beautiful offices in the heart of Sydney CBD. Great culture, smart yet very fun and inspiring people. Flexible working hours. Very generous in terms of Christmas parties, half yearly celebrations, fresh fruit, yummy snacks, beer and Friday lunches.

    Cons

    Prior to Freelancer, I came from an extremely corporate environment which had clear manuals, very defined role and team structures & policies and procedures in place. Freelancer, being a young company, lacks this which at times can be difficult however it allows you to learn more in the long run and provides employees with the opportunity to make a difference.

    I worked at Freelancer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working hours Free soft drinks Friday lunches

    Cons

    Management spends a lot of effort trying to make you think it's a fun place to work and convince you that it's better than other companies so that you will accept a lower salary. The company is focused solely on profit and has moved away from R&D.
