I have been working at Chegg full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Its not easy for anyone to survive in a company that is competitive and is out to solve a hard problem. I wont talk about all the perks since every company in the valley is expected to offer those benefits. I want to talk about what defines Chegg and its engineering culture: - I love that in-spite of all the uncertainties around ed-tech industry, engineers who believe in our mission have stuck around and made it their personal mission to serve the student - Leadership team believes in the engineering team and has put full trust in engineering leadership to do what is right for the students and the share holders - We have had few bumps during our growth but we have learned and rectified them quickly and executive team have always supported us. We believe in life long learning and failures are a part of every success story - Chegg believes in rewarding the brightest and the smartest. It rewards individuals who put oxygen in the room than individuals who are toxic and suck it out of the room. - It does not matter whom you know, all it matters is whether you have put student first and you bring in a great attitude every day to work and believe in taking the company forward every day

Cons

If there were any, I would have let the executive team know. There is no point in ranting about those issues on glass door.

Advice to Management

Stay on course since we are onto something huge which will change the education system. And on top of that, its a nobel cause. Negative glass door reviews should not defocus anyone from the goals since the team that believes in the vision and mission is going to deliver!

    Cons

    low comp poor low-level managers inconsistent practices, some decisions don't put students first unlimited vacation makes it difficult to take time off if you don't have the right manager

    Advice to Management

    chegg has great leadership and vision, but the question is whether or not employees can execute on it

    I have been working at Chegg full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits: - full medical coverage - on-site gym - free lunches/breakfast - great parties - unlimited vacation - wildly connected employees (leaders of all the major companies in Silicon Valley)

    Cons

    Where to begin... - lack of managerial ownership, a team of A-types, & interdepartmental conflicting priorities = a lot of wasted time, pointless meetings, and incomplete projects. - 0 career growth unless you're tight with the right director/exec - run around on promotions (they are not merit based) - amnesia about company history: new leaders fail to look at how we got where we are - questionable business ethics (driven by $$$$) - becoming 'good ole boys club' culture - slowest product development I've seen compared to other tech companies I've worked at for years in the valley - have to threaten to quit or present manager with a new offer for salary increases

    Advice to Management

    Reward your good employees, actually 'put students first', invest in new product leadership
