“Work ok but constant chasing left a bad taste.
We had an escrow mechanism with the freelancer where we are given certain number of days by elance to review after we are provided with the product.
Even though the overall delivery was delayed by a week or so, the freelancer kept chasing us everyday for releasing funds and wont given us the sufficient time for review which left a bad taste. Its like there is no trust in elance escrow mechanism.
Work quality was ok, but if you have to hire this freelancer I would recommend that do not make any upfront payment (they'll ask for it). Escrow is ok but make sure you receive everything including the code and chance to review it before you release the funds. ”
“Constant chasing - was us chasing the client for feedback and payments. Client took more than one week on average per release to respond. Being a 3 week / 3 milestone project, that was quite unreasonable. We also told the client that if he needs time, please let us know so that we can adjust the milestones accordingly - or we would be penalized for late delivery.
On one occasion, we asked the client for feedback for work sent, as there had been a delay of 10 days from their side, this is what he responded :
"Where is the "aspect of schedule" written , please send it to me."
Since this was a fixed price project, the schedule was built into the milestones and agreed to before starting the project.
Quite clearly the client did not bother about reading the message board or review the schedules.
But what is interesting is that the client is a developer himself (from India) and never once had an issue with the work that we sent him. So that should say something.
But I think what really got the clients goat is that when he asked for extra work, we told him that it was out of scope and he would have to pay extra. The client ofcourse refused and we conceded, or we stood loose whatever work had been done.
I am not sure what the client had to gain by leaving this feedback, as he got what he wanted and much more, within his budget, and from our perspective well within the timeframe - not withstanding his feedback time.
