Support from management

If you like to be a freelancer, Upwork is for you.

Teamwork

Since this is a ffreelancing company, this doesn't apply.

Freedom to work independently

I like the autonomy of Upwork where you interact directly with the client who wishes your services.

Internal Communication

Communication is rare but when it does happen, they tell of important things going on at Upwork.

Office / Work Environment

With this company you make your own working conditions as this job is done from home.

Work-Life Balance

Because this is a freelancing job you make your own work/life balance. You are in charge of how much work you take in.

Handicapped Accessibility

I believe that the website where one gets leads could be more accessible for blind people trying to use the site. I also believe that their tests could have timing factors left off particularly for blind people using screen reader technology.

Challenging Work

Again, this depends on what you and your client agree on

Suggestions for improvement

  • As stated in the comments above, I believe that testing could be non-timed, particularly for those with visual impairments who use screen readers which allows the computer to talk thereby making it possible to get the same information as the sighted person on the screen.

What I like about the company

I like the fact that Upwork is a freelancing company and that all interactions are between you and directly to your clients without any interference from Upwork.

What I dislike about the company

I dislike the fact that their website isn't as accessible to blind people as it could be.
