I worked at lynda.com full-time (Less than a year)
The core mission of Lynda.com is education. I was a customer before and after my brief period there, so yeah, I liked the place. People are likable to work with, free lunches from good places.
The Agoura office had people too separated, and there was this kind of malaise around there. Low energy. I would not want to hang out with the people I worked with for any reason.
Advice to Management
Some of the managers in the Agoura office are less than personable. You don't need beanbag chairs and gamerooms, but maybe less like a hospice.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at lynda.com (Carpinteria, CA) in May 2016.
The process was pretty straightforward. They sent me an email telling me my profile was very interesting and requesting for some date/time slots for a phone interview. I answer back giving them the dates. They emailed me again asking some questions in advance. I answered the questions via email too. Everything happened via email. Finally, they wrote me back telling me they chose not to move forward with my application. The phone interview never happened. I answered with a "thank you" email.
