Direct Hires with Clients — Impressions? Experiences? Horror stories?
I was just curious — how many people here have experiences with working directly with their clients (i.e. not through an outsourcing/outstaffing firm, but in a non-Ukrainian product company)?
I’m not talking about fixed-price/hourly freelancing/Upwork/etc. gigs either — more like direct, long-term jobs for permanent projects/teams, and either working remotely or on-site wherever their clients located.
I’m collecting stories/experiences from different people to see how popular this method of employment is, and what sort of problems people ran into with it.
(P.S. feel free to answer in whatever language, btw — its just that my Russian/Ukrainian would be a bit painful to read for everyone, hence the English .:))
