Working as a free lancer gives me scope to discover new avenues, meet new people and explore more. It just not makes us more productive but also helps to unleash our hidden talent and potential. Working at different places with different requirements makes us more pliable cooperative and helps adjust with different working environments.
Besides it is perfect way to maintain work life balance as one can be selective and flexible at the same time.

Dislikes

Working as freelancer limits the scope of growth as we are not tied up with one organisation. Besides it seems to be based on Network PR or contacts as it may be called.
It is not a cake walk to get and handle projects all the time
Financially one has to strugggle as there is no fixed income.
Since one is not associated through pay roll various compensations and incentives are missed.
So it's like you can't have the cake and eat it too.
Another parameter called growth is also a matter of concern as it becomes subjective to the amount of work an individual puts in.
There is no designation as such at times.

Work

My work is interesting , challenging and a learning experience all at the same time.
I get a chance to meet new people, work with different learned individuals and find new things almost everyday. I need to be updated and a good listener and receptive

Team mates -- prefer to work independently. Feel threatened by your skill. Once a got a mail sent to me in Russian. I translated it with Google Translate. When the Russian lady working in the office (one who is usually charged with translation) heard of this, she made her own translation -- claiming that mine was grammatically incorrect and then went on to destroy every one of the hard copies of my translation.
Training -- Nil. Spending time on training is discouraged.
Job Security -- Nil. A freelancer can go at any time sans any benefits or even time to wind up.
Career Growth -- Only by showing someone else down. Or showing that you have control over others. Usually done by holding long winding meetings .
Salary Appraisal -- No appraisal was ever done. Salary package was a pack of lies, promises to increase the salary were even bigger so.
Travel -- Lots of it but all International Travel was done by the big bosses whether they knew anything or not.Local travel was paid for.

Being a freelancer help you explore each work profile and different companies. Every company has its own way of working. Freelancing actually helps you know in what field and what work profile you can excel. Apparently, it is that part of your profession where you know how you have to move ahead.

Dislikes

Job Security. You don’t have one particular company in freelancing. You’ll be meeting different people with different perception and more work experience than yours.

Work

It’s quite exciting but hectic. You have to mentally prepare yourself since there are long working hours. You have to love your job to excel in it, else it’ll be just like some other ‘not so wanted to do’ work for you.

It gives me the freedom to take up assignments as and when I want. Most of the time I get great people to work with, along with a great work environment. Salary that I draw is based on the job, and I can decide if it matches my expectations. I take up assignments pan India so that I get to see places which I normally wouldn't have a chance to visit. All in all, it works to to be a freelancer, even if there are challenges sometimes. Then again, what's life without a challenge!

Dislikes

Sometimes work is hard to come by.

You get to know different company, their work cultures and working style. I used to research a lot and study a lot since I work from home. Work life balance is certainly an added advantage since there is a lot of flexibility. However the compensation will not be on regular basis like a salaried or payroll employee gets which is a huge drawback doing freelance job.

Dislikes

Compensation package and the uncertainity of job

Work

Working as a freelancer is exciting as I get to know more people to network with and work for clients with different background

The best thing is i get lots of free time for my extra studies to focus on further studies. There is no one to control me for my work. I am the owner of my business. And mainly i love my job.

Dislikes

There is not fixed income monthly. Sometime i earn more than 50k in a month and sometime i just get around 20k. So this is the only thing on which m working to find a solution.

The most interesting and challenging part was that I worked alone.I had to decide what variables to take and what model to make.I have worked for local people like shop owners or school owners, who have no knowledge about data analysis or machine learning.Making them understand my job in terms of a layman was fun.The whole idea of working as a freelancer was a blessing in disguise.

Dislikes

The work pressure is high and the timings of working

Work

Exciting, challenging, great for wokaholics , you dare to take risks .
