Although it's not very intuitive, it is actually quite easy.

TEXT ON THE OUTSIDE

After you've taken your "text on path", you select only the shape you used as a path and flip it horizontally.

SQUEEZED TEXT

To "unsqueeze" the text, you can go either two ways:

1) Kern the letters until you're happy with the result or

2)Select the shape you used as a path and manipulate it (i.e. make it bigger and move it around) until the text is as desired.

Hope it helped. Any doubt, let me know.
