Pros

Chegg is a fast pace, fun start up with a great reason for existing. It's filled with incredibly intelligent and innovative people. Every day is a new day and every project is about moving forward and innovation. The great part of a start up is that you are not just coming to work for the same day to day tasks. Each person has variable skills whether they know it or not and Chegg more than allows you to add your input to the various projects. This company is the perfect fit for a get-bored-easily-multi-tasker team player!

Cons

Because the company is moving so fast and projects are popping up all the time, the communiation between groups and the respect for how one flow affects another department is just plain lacking. Often, some spark has initiated in a different department and all of a sudden, months later, someone asks, "should we tell the engineers to track it so accounting can bill it?" However, Chegg has realized this and is working on it...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The biggest complaint I hear, and the one that I have, is the communication between departments. Its getting better as lots as been done although more can be done such as a well maintained intranet to include company information and updated policies and procedures.

    Pros

    Whether it's to push for an IPO, or just to make the business grow as much as possible, the company has assembled an amazing executive team in recent months. The company is growing quickly, having completed four acquisitions in the past year, so there is always plenty of work to do, and marketshare to obtain. It is a very collaborative workplace, and the future of the company is based on how the entire company grows, not just isolated groups. The company has regular awards to celebrate employees who embody Chegg's core values, and offers free lunches, snacks and drinks every day. It is a great place to work and I enjoy going to work every day. Plus, I feel positive that we're helping college students save time, save money and get smarter.

    Cons

    Chegg is growing too big for its present space. This is probably just a side-effect of its impressive recent growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing to change the world. Chegg has an amazing product offering and very talented employees. Combined with the management team in place, it seems destined to disrupt the education system in a very positive way.

    Pros

    From the start you are greeted with a smile and the knowledge of their apprecation you are there. They keep you will informed of the policy & procedures and how to meet your numbers. The teamleads are always willing to help and encourage you along the way. The manager, always smiling and willing to work with you is very surprising since you can catch her picking , shipping right beside you at times. That really makes a person want to stay and be apart of the Chegg team. I really enjoyed my last rush with some of the new supervisors and teamleads, change is good. I have been apart of the Chegg rush team 3 times and everytime cant wait to go back.

    Cons

    Worked this last rush and it was very hot at times. Sometimes I really didnt think I was gonna make it. Start times tend to change often which for some of us with kids can be a little hard to manage. The chances of being hired on fulltime are not good as you are told from the beginning can be hard to deal with. The breakroom tends to be far away from the actual working area and can be a long walk. However they do give you a 15 minute break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to employ more individuals like myself who would be honored to work with you. Air conditioning and heat would make life a little easier and would keep people around longer.
