    I worked at Chegg full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People are friendly, compensation is good, free lunches and it is possible to take long vacations. The office contains a pool table and a gym.

    Cons

    Being typecast in a role is quite common (and a lot of employees there know it), so it is difficult to expand career wise.

    Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Chegg.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn first. The position looked interesting, so I decided to pursue the process. However, when I replied to the recruiter, it seems that he didn't even remember he reached out to me first. That was the first time that I had a bit weird feeling about this company. After the initial screen, I had an opportunity to speak with the design manager. He was really nice, and passionate about what he's been working on. We both had a great time, and he told me he wants to bring me in to the next round on-site interview on the phone. A week after, I visited the Santa Clara office. I did design presentation and met a couple on people 1:1. The atmosphere during the presentation wasn't that great. I felt a lot of pressure, and they asked me a bunch of questions before I explain the thing, which was distracting. Overall experience was okay, but during the interview I already had a feeling I'm not a great fit. Because what they are looking for and what I've experienced and been expecting for next role is completely different. I wrote thank you email and my impression frankly to the recruiter. At the end, he didn't even reply to my email. It was really disappointing. Overall, I don't think it's worth to spend my time on this opportunity.
