“Work has been agreed based on very specific features provided during the job interview on UpWork, during the first week the company called me on skype to provided me with instructions to move to Elance, providing no reason for it. When I asked, they said that UpWork had issues to track the work done. I accepted as it was the beginning of the work and the logo/layout of site was somehow satisfactory. Company claimed knowledge and provided links of past work that was exactly what I was looking for, proving they had the expertise to complete this project on time and budget.
Unfortunately, that was not the case, they didn't have the knowledge claimed, had to research how to do what the example of the link provided during the interview was doing, charging hours and work for it. I accepted and paid for all hours, thinking it could be just issues to be figured out during development, but it went on and on. Just aesthetics were provided and not really functionalities.
I was also unsatisfied as the company was working for a few hours per day, an average of 10 hours per week, which was delaying the work. I then created a detailed doc of features missing to be developed, what needed to improve and a deadline to complete the work, which was over by 4 weeks at that time. It was not done, and I paid hourly for nothing again. I then canceled, we discussed the work again and they provided me a fixed price to complete the work, however they wanted 40% advance even though I had already paid for more than 100% of the agreed budget on the hourly work. I gave them all my reasons and they didn't want to accept, claiming that 'my satisfaction was their concern' and would do everything to make me satisfied with a quality work. Unfortunately that seems to be a script they tell all customers. I'm throwing away all the budget spent, which was nothing compared to the revenue and contracts lost due to a work not completed.
I WILL NEVER work with them again and don't recommend them!
