    Pros

    Not too much hierarchy (a very few number of levels between engineer and CEO), no barriers for the feedback between team and executives
    Great product, universally useful and already popular
    Lots of technical challenges
    Great team with creative and positive attitude without an ego problem

    Cons

    Not too many benefits I'd say
    Lots of work (not really cons, just to make sure other people understand this is not a place to relax)

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on the informal communication with various team members to explain them the reasoning for the decisions. Spend less time on policies and rules.
    Provide more ways to connect the interests of team members and the interests if the company.

    Pros

    The lines between work and play become blurred when you find yourself working with a team that knows how to do both, with passion. For the past few months at Grammarly, I've worked harder than I've ever worked, but never had so much fun in the process!

    Cons

    The hours are long. But, if building a consumer product company were easy, everyone would do it!

    Pros

    Grammarly has ambitious plans to perfect all written English for the world’s 1+ billion English speakers. It is a small, but exceptional, team with a passion for life and language, impeccable technical skills, and tremendous drive. Our San Francisco headquarters is centrally located in a shared office space replete with startups, and our vacation plan and benefits are very competitive.

    Cons

    Growing companies typically experience "growing pains," but Grammarly seems to defy this precedent. The management team is cohesive and open to feedback, but with a very clear vision for the company's future. As a result, all team members work long hours (with pleasure!) to realize these impressive goals. We truly feel like we are a part of something special.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! It is really special to work at a company where you feel like your ideas are heard and appreciated. Grammarly's management team truly knows what they are doing. They get along great and encourage new ideas and processes.
