"Great place to work"

Sep 3, 2020 - Career Services


Company culture is really positive. Leadership has really great intentions of it being a great place to work and follow through on their goals and intentions. Communication from senior leadership is


No cons really. It's a very hard working company, they expect the best of its' employees so goals can be high reaching, but company puts high priority on employee wellness.

    Average Interview

    I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at 2U (Washington, DC) in Jun 2020


    I submitted my application online and afterwards had an employee send an internal referral to HR. I received a phone interview request the day after the internal referral was sent! At the end of the phone interview, the recruiter invited me to video interview with the team. I had a total of three video interviews, including one with a VP, and received an offer less than a week after. The entire process took 5 months due to 2U having a hiring pause during COVID-19. The process was overall smooth, the recruiter was personable and quick to respond to questions, and the team was authentic and positive. I am looking forward to joining the organization!
