I start my SEO and web developer carrier on Freelancer in 2009. Freelancer helps me lot get connected with clients all over the world. It's a good place where you earn great money at home. Highly recommended.

Freelace work was good for me sometimes when I preferred to work at home or I tried to apply for full time job. By the way, the salary is not fare for good work and for person with professional skills.
I worked as a freelancer and I made bids on many projects. I made a team to complete those projects and all othe work got paid. I really gained alot from being my own manager and by managing my team as well.
Due to more and more people joining the freelancer.com the competition has increased manifolds. Apart from that most of the people working there agrees to work below the minimum wage, which makes it impossible for the average bidder to get the job. Most of these low bidders don't even provide the quality work and hence employers usually go home with allot of disappointment.
It's an on-line job board for those who want to freelance their skills internationally. Both freelancers and clients can either seek jobs or post jobs that requires creative works.
There's flexibility for both as employers can hold contests with monetary award instead of just posting a job for getting many artists' entries before choosing a final work or artists can create works to enter that said contest without needing to be rewarded a job through a bidding quote.
It's open to all freelancers, not just artists, such as writers, data entry, web designers, etc. You can take on jobs from around the world and interact with clients on-site throughout the process.
You do have the same set of complications that you have in freelancing here too, such as long hours for revisions, time zone differences and payment/contract issues.
Flexibility to choose creative jobs, between contest jobs and bidding jobs.
