    I have been working at Chegg full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people in all departments, bonkers pay, excellent benefits, fantastic mission... did I mention great people?

    Also, upper management *actually* knows what they're doing. I can count on one finger on one hand the number of companies I've worked for where that has been the case.

    Cons

    They have yet to issue us company Lamborghinis, despite that being the norm for 0.00% of companies. Let's start a trend.

    Advice to Management

    Keep at it! Don't buckle under external pressures if you can help it.

    Pros

    Work at your own time. Pay is proportional to the questions solved.

    Cons

    Timeline difference. Most questions are posted at mid-night (IST). Incorrect solutions can lead to abrupt termination.
