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


    I chose this company over another and I haven't regretted it for one second. I could tell in my interview that this company and the people that worked here were like a special gem. They really adhere to the values you see on the wall when you enter. I can honestly say that the learning culture is strong here, there is a lot of trust and autonomy as well as humble, intelligent, approachable and supportive coworkers. The fact that we are touching the lives of 42 million people world wide through learning just adds to how I feel about working here. I also love that I can take any course I want for free!


    I don't have a con. We are growing quickly right now, and it is an exciting time but may not be for everyone if you just want a job where you are bored and on autopilot.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have any. They do a great job! They provide support and great work life balance and understanding.

    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Udemy (San Francisco, CA).


    Recruiter reached out to me and she was a pleasure to work with. Had a few phone screens, homework assignment and got the rare in house interview. Really thought i had this in the bag but 2 days later I got the rejection call saying they changed their mind about the role and aren't hiring anyone.
    These bait & switch tactics are a terrible way to treat anyone looking to work at a company. Sadly it left me angry and upset. I had such a great experience leading up to the final call.
    Oh and to top it off the job is open again but of course I didn't hear from them. Complete waste of my time and theirs.
