    I have been working at Course Hero full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a good atmosphere where everyone are enthusiastic about their work and willing to cooperate. They pay close attention to the culture in the company, which is really important in my opinion. Another thing is that Course Hero is growing fast and attracting more and more users. The statistics of growth is exciting.
    The company provides all kinds of benefits, including gas card, commute card, endless snack and colorful activities. They value work life balance.

    Cons

    I feel really good for now.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Course Hero.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email to set up a time for a phone interview with the VP of analytics. Phone interview included a few technical SQL questions. After the phone interview, I was told the next step is 4-6 hour data case study. After spending a lengthy time on the case study, I was told a week later I would not move forward. It is unfair to ask a candidate to spend personal time on a case study that early in the interview process. Felt like a huge waste of my time.
