Offered work through enterprise (finally :) yay!)

I've just finally got an offer from a client in Enterprise. Excited to finally possibly get into Enterprise after applying so many times to jobs from different enterprise clients. Does the process for completing the tasks review stage take long?

 Welcome to the dark side lol ๐Ÿ™‚

 

No, it does not take long, a couple of days if I remember correctly.

haha thanks. The more I can see the better. ๐Ÿ™‚ Mainly wondering about how long so I can actually do the work for the client. lol

In my (admittedly limited) experience with Enterprise Clients, it takes about a week for enterprise clients to do what it takes normal clients just minutes to do.  This is not necessarily the fault of the client, but Upwork themselves delays all enterprise engagements by at least several days to closely examine them for "compliance."  I'm not sure who decides what constitutes compliance, Upwork or the client.  I sure wish I knew more about what was going on in the background with these Enterprise Client arrangements, because they are a mystery compared to interacting with a normal client.

is there an actual benefit to get a job with an enterprise client?

i haven't applied to any of their jobs yet, since, at least in my field, the payment they offer is rather a joke.

I got through compliance already, it took a few days. 

 

Well, enterprise clients are decent. There are some fortune 500 ones and fast growing startups so nothing wrong with that and they do pay just fine for the work. Depends on what clients you get from it just like anything else. 

 

I worked with one before that was on elance and they were an amazing client, though they are now only enterprise on here and weren't at the time I got them through elance. That client was one of the fortune 50 companies.
