Pros:
- You don't have to pay to apply for a job.

Cons:
- Low hourly rates available, very few offers with rates above $15 per hour.

- Very few offers available.

- Very long interview process. Overall, it might take hours to go through their chats, videocalls, etc. But then 99.9% of the clients are not being serious about offering a job and most of them are not even legit, most of them are startups or sidehustlers. They almost never come back to you or it takes them so long to "think about it", that when they do come back, you're already busy with other projects (that you received from other, more trustworthy platforms) Overall, it takes so much time to just go through this interview process, that it's not even worth the effort.

- I've been using this platform for over two years with zero complains from my clients. Then all of the sudden they simply blocked my access without even notifying me in advance. They explained to me, that because I have a Russian passport, they have to stop working with me out of fear of further sanctions from the US government, etc. etc. Even though I don't even live in Russia! They answered me that in order to stay on the platform, I will have to submit an application using an ID of a different country. Like, seriously? Are you really asking me to change my citizenship just to stay on your platform? Their email to me was full of hypocrisy and discrimination.

Overall, I would not recommend this platform to anyone. There are far better platforms out there.
