Can you share a bit about your experience working with Uncompany and its freelancers?

We have loved working with Uncompany because the restaurant industry has low margins and quick changes and Uncompany was a great strategic and flexible partner to help us weather the storm.

If you were to share one piece of advice to other companies thinking of working with freelancers what would that be?

Try to integrate them as much as possible into your business. Give them more information than you think they need b/c the distance is real and often the watercooler talk in an office is vital to success of campaigns and other marketing efforts that often don’t get relayed to the freelancer.
