“Look, to be fair, Olivier started out strong. He was quick and responsive. He got us a quality product in a reasonable timeframe. He was also very inexpensive. We definitely got our money's worth.
We went back & forth through a number of iterations to fix up a few things until we were happy.
The only problem was that we took a break at Xmas time. We had left Olivier with a few things to finish up while we focused on some other activities. When we went back to them, those last few things were not done. (This was months later.)
We tried to get back in touch through eLance and via email, but it took a while to get a response. It appears that he no longer works on eLance - which is a shame.
When he did respond to me eventually, he said he'd fix things up. But I never heard back from him. That' why the professionalism is scored so low.
Look, I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and re-hire him for non-critical jobs. But I'd definitely structure milestone payments so that you only pay for the portion you're happy with.”
