I am trying to get a complicated site built, and I go on Elance and Guru...and the problem is, I keep getting people who don't actually do the work, but only REoutsource it.
Let me rephrase, "That's right, REoutsource."
Basically, I don't need anybody to REoutsource, I just want the main source doing the actual work to do the charge...not some "outsource firm" or "REoutsource 3rd party."
These REoutsourcers keep referring to their REoutsourced designers they hired as "team member."
How do they know even know the work is fabulous?
Not to mentioned the portfolio? Are these fake portfolios, or they are just proud of the work the worker they can find their work?
Even worse, is when the profile is posing as a fake individual; it's almost should be illegal.
So they are charging me way more than if working with the actually outsource individual?
It's really hard to find good individual to outsource who actually do the work on Elance and Guru these days instead of these major outsource firms that REoutsource to make an additional profit.
Not to mention these outsource firms only accept high bids instead of individual who take the project for much reasonable price...and if they no longer have that team member while working on my project, I have to wait longer for the project to complete and don't hear from them for a long time.
