Best Places to Work:2015 (#28)
I have been working at Chegg full-time (More than a year)
1. Freedom: The first benefit came up to my mind is the freedom. I have full freedom and autonomy to speak up my ideas without fear and am also able to implement them. This is the most important element for my career. I feel myself being recognized and the work I have done being appreciated by the company. It motivates me even more to do a better job. Unlike those giant big companies, Chegg allow me to own and manage a product, where I can expose myself to a wide range of scopes. This is hardly found in anywhere else.
2. Innovation: Chegg embrace innovation and continuous improvement. Whenever I found areas needed enhancement, I'm not afraid to voice out, even to the senior leadership team (Not much ranking or bureaucracy at Chegg). The company really appreciate employees who bring in new aspects to the current practice and encourage everyone to challenge the existing process and make it better.
3. Work life balance: Chegg really treat us as adults. We never monitor when employees come into work, how long they work and where they work etc. As long as we get our work done, that is what matters the most!
4. Culture: Everyone here is very nice and down to earth. We're like a family where we help each other to succeed.
Other soft perks are nice and clean office, unlimited snacks, free lunch, onsite fitness, adjustable desk and super comfy chair, etc.
Can't think of any. I'm looking forward to seeing our company move to the next level!
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Chegg (New York, NY) in April 2017.
Applied for a position within Chegg's product line. Started off with phone screens from HR and hiring manager. I was then asked to come onsite where I was to put together a case study on one of their products and present it to the group.
Onsite interviews lasted about three hours, which consisted of said presentation and three individual sessions.The presentation and Q&A afterwards were pretty straight forward. The one on one individuals were relatively straight forward as well, asked about my experience/background, projects i've worked on, etc. My negative experience mostly stemmed from the last person I met with when he said something along the lines of "I don't like to be the smartest person in whichever environment I'm in, whether it be at work or with friends. But maybe in this room, I am." He also mentioned something about my background/talking points being "institutionalized" and was well rehearsed. Not sure what would prompt someone to mention those condescending remarks but that couldn't be any more of a turnoff.
Afterwards, I sent my thank yous and followed up with HR which I have received no responses.
