Good source for projects, though they take a large bite out for themselves


I’ve done a few projects through Upwork. The app makes it pretty easy to review and apply for projects. I wish it would have an option to only show projects that came in since the last time I looked, and mark projects that I have viewed. I have turned down some long-term projects, where the pay rate would have been good enough if it weren’t for Upwork taking a flat percentage for the life of the project and any subsequent work with the client. They really could earn more if they would dial back the greed and have a sliding scale for their take of the revenue. Another challenge is competition with the whole world - an American can’t survive on rates that are rich for people in many other countries. Between Upwork’s take and taxes, the rates on many projects offer no benefit at all. Good for them in low-wage countries; now Americans and others have to figure out how to compete fairly.

Useful But Flawed


I like having Upwork at my fingertips. It's great to see job invitations no matter where I am. That being said, the app doesn't provide me with enough of the tools found on their regular website. It also crashes...a lot.

Since my last rating, I’ve increased my score from three to four stars. The app hasn’t crashed for quite a while, so I feel as though I was heard the first time.

One improvement I’d like to see: There are times when I want to get information off the desktop site since it is more robust. I know that on the mobile app, I can go into Settings and click on Desktop. It provides a lot more options than the mobile site. However, tapping on desktop still does not provide me with full site access. It only allows me to see one Report, and when I click on Jobs it doesn’t give me access to my Stats. If the developers could improve this, it would be helpful.

It’s Okay


The app is good, but the quality of available jobs is like a needle in a haystack. I’ve used Upwork to hire freelancers and I would say it’s great. On the client hiring side, I will say Upwork does it great job of protecting the freelancers time and ensures you will pay them for service.

On the freelancer side, you have to invest a significant time in bidding on projects. I recommend Upwork conduct tutorials on how to win bids. Also, I think having American and non-American freelancers on the same platform sets poor expectations for paying “expert” related jobs. This results in a long time being wasted working with a potential client who wants to pay you $5/hr to conduct a technical task. However, Upwork doesn’t require all client to show their budget or pay rate to post. So you bid and they give you a recommended bid, which is usually super high and the client is just going to take the lowest bid.
