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

    Pros

    Good experience New employees usually given option to choose where to work Flexible hours/work from home allowances Ping pong and foosball table

    Cons

    Clique-y product and management team, general disregard for engineers. Difficult to change position once you've started. Limited opportunities for promotion, senior eng's/team leads are often paid the same as general engineers, at least for the first few years in their role. Low pay ceiling - expect 70k until (well after) promotion, which may take 3+ years. PMs usually promoted within 6 months or so. Dwindling number of engineers in Sydney, but growing overseas where employment is cheaper. General priority of managers seems to be growth hacking and producing product videos. Limited opportunity to create solid code and write tests - PMs usually instruct engineers to cut corners if it will speed up the release of the product.

    I have been working at Freelancer for more than a year

    Pros

    You can work from home and as per your choices

    Cons

    This platform is very Insecure for services providers. I worked on a programming + web design project which took me two months to complete it. After the employer had released milestones and payments. After Freelancer.com deducted their commission, its staff refused to let me withdraw my share of that hard-earned money. Reason: They were trying to verify the employer's identity. (this employer completed 77 projects in the past.) Every time I talked to them, they would send an email and request that employer to upload some documents. The employer never bothered to respond to those emails. Its been almost two months and I'm still struggling to get my money and they are still asking me to wait and wait for an indefinite time period.
