I worked at Chegg

Pros

Ability to communicate with management, the organization is flat in many of the right ways. Chegg recently has brought on name brand executives (a plus) yet you can still have your voice heard by anyone, which helps employees get the resources they need.
Excellent use of a wide range of technologies within engineering.
Inter-department collaboration is increasing.
The food.
New office location is far better than the old office.

Cons

Interviewing procedures have improved but still rough around the edges.
Innovation is great for growing companies, but if too many ideas get the green light, you end up redoing/scrapping things later on. You can still move forward as a company while putting the brakes on a few more things.
Churn tends to happen post rush. Find ways to reinvigorate the staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

QA performs wonderfully, but is under resourced.
Release schedules are overly ambitious, scale things back.

    Pros

    Academic Learning, general management and leadership development

    Cons

    No real industry specific skill up-gradation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't track the employees and their small activities, Be result oriented. Work on MBO principles. The is a scope for employees to be paid higher while increasing the profits if the employees' suggestions are heard.
