    I have been working at lynda.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture is awesome - fun employee events, workout classes at lunch, free lunch, 100% paid benefits for employees and their spouse/dependents, friendly and approachable management, motivated and happy colleagues, etc. The environment is relaxed yet fast paced and ambitious at the same time, which brings a good balance to the company. I commute over an hour each way for work because I know this type of employer is hard to find and I feel lucky to work for lynda.com.

    Cons

    This is a fast paced company that has grown significantly over the last couple of years. With this growth has come much change - a lot of change. For some people, this is great, we are constantly evolving and working to improve. Flexibility and a can-do attitude is key if you not only want to work at lynda.com, but want to succeed at lynda.com.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the transparency and build out career-pathing for low to mid level employees, not just the top level.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calabasas, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Calabasas, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at lynda.com in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications were good. Following the technical reviews were not very good, in my opinion. The first actual interview I went through was over the web and did a coding challenge. The person on the other end was not very clear about what he wanted, gave me no background... Just wasn't friendly in general. Just to give perspective. I have been working in my technology for a long time now and in fact landed a senior role as a slam dunk with a renowned tech company but decided not to take the job because of the location (didn't want the commute). I finished the "coding challenge" was able to do everything the way the person asked me to. I had a few questions along the way since I had forgotten some specific syntax. Felt as if I did, "OK" on it not totally perfect, but ok. Then I had an interview over skype with the technical director who I jived with really well. I was feeling like the whole thing was going really well. Then two days later I get an email from their jobvite system, "Sorry we've moved on to other candidates." I was actually surprised! I usually land every role I interview for. So I called the internal recruiter and they told me, "We give no specific feedback." So cool company they're just kind of rude when it comes to interviews! Sheesh! Just tell my why you didn't hire me! I wasted my time too! I want to know why!
