    I have been working at lynda.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    * The people are amazing. They are not only smart and talented but also genuine and nice.
    * Work-life balance
    * Company is growing tremendously so there are a lot of opportunities to move up and/or gain more responsibilities
    * Company treats their employees very well. They provide free insurance (great benefits in general), health and wellness programs (yoga, zumba, etc.) and free lunches
    * The pay is very competitive

    Cons

    * Lynda.com has been growing very quickly so people are trying to catch up with the growth. For example, they are just starting to implement some very needed systems (i.e. Zuora, ERP, etc.). They are getting there though.

    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 days - interviewed 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!
