    Pros

    The ability to fit work around other commitments, good variety of tasks, very nice clients (in my experience!), good support from Timeetc.

    Cons

    Takes a while to build up client base, payment via Paypal (fees are deducted)

    Advice to Management

    It would make such a difference if it was possible to be paid straight into a bank account rather than via Paypal as the fees are substantial.

    Pros

    You can use your skills to work remotely.

    Cons

    Clients seeking work can be fickle, and freelancers punished for this.
    when they decide to not send you work and discuss why, you are left hanging.
    They don't even tell you sometimes that a client has left.
    The online system does not work well.
    The account managers never return emails. (call handlers do)

    Advice to Management

    Look after your freelancers, and they will look after you. Simple business advice really.
    Your account managers need some retraining on getting the best from their freelance/client relationships. Sometimes clients get on board and feel its not working for them, doesn't mean the freelance has done anything wrong. Even if they have long standing clients. Penalising your freelancer without discussing with them is very very wrong and unprofessional. They are playing with peoples livelihoods.
    I would honestly encourage freelancers to look elsewhere at this stage, as I am.

    Thank you for your review. I'm really sorry to hear that you feel this way - as you can see from the other reviews here, your experience isn't typical.

    I'd like to put things right - please... More
