I worked at lynda.com full-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Very knowledgeable developers/architects
Food served 3 times
Learning some cutting-edge technologies.
Salary among the best I've found.
Interview was not impossible but it was tough, meaning that if they hire you, they know that they want you.
Incredible senior management (my director and the VP included).
Life-saver (I got hired in a time of great need).
I don't work there anymore :(
They (not including management) have a specific tight-knit friendship that you will not be a part of, and will be treated as such. It doesn't mean they will treat you like crap, but it seemed kind of cold when I was hired there and I've never had any trouble with anyone at work in my entire life.
Loosen up dudes... treat new employees as you would treat guests at your house. Some of these new employees will be of great help to you once they're caught up with orientation. Don't feel so threatened, no one is there to take your job.
Advice to Management
I think you're just doing a great job of keeping everything together, even with the minuscule problems with the staff. I would advise that you concentrate a bit more on employee morale because when I was working there, I didn't feel secure.... after I left, I found out that it was a pretty secure job but I needed to feel that once I was there and I didn't.
