An incredible place to learn and grow...incredibly quickly.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at UDEMY full-time for less than a year

ProsUdemy moves at a blinding pace, which creates an environment where the entire team is stretched, challenged and constantly growing. If you thrive under a fast-paced environment and are looking to be surrounded by humble, smart people, then Udemy's a great place to be.

ConsComfort with controlled chaos is essential, as it is at any startup. You'll need to be equipped to deliver, iterate and evolve rapidly to succeed.

Fast-paced startup culture. Not much room for growth.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at UDEMY

ProsGreat work environment. People are friendly, smart, and considerate. It's easy to get excited about work because the mission is so compelling.

ConsA lot of churn amongst younger employees.
You're limited in terms of your career growth. You get stuck doing the same thing and don't always get the opportunity to learn new things and take on new projects.
The business potential of the marketplace is suspect. Most courses don't sell well and leaves a lot of instructors feeling short-changed.

Advice to Senior ManagementHelp employees grow their careers and not just work on the same projects in a rote manner.

Smart/friendly people, lots of opportunities for growth

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at UDEMY

ProsPeople here are smart, ambitious, but at the same time, friendly. A lot of opportunities to learn and grow.

ConsNone really. People work hard and a lot of hours are put in, so that may be something to consider.

Fast paced startup, uncertain value in platform

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at UDEMY

ProsClassic startup environment. Fast paced. Everyone is passionate about their work and nice to each other.

ConsStill not very well known compared to other online MOOC's. Also, majority of classes do not make money on the marketplace and that made it hard to see value in platform/company mission. Also, large divide between American/foreign employees when it comes to collaboration of projects. Many people I know prefer Coursera classes and I personally have not found value in a Udemy class.

Advice to Senior ManagementChurn and burn of younger employees is not good in developing new talent or having satisfied new workers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
