    Pros

    You can set your own hours and during peak times, pay may go up to $45 an hour.

    I have been working at Chegg full-time

    Pros

    The pay is competitive
    it is convenient to work from home

    Cons

    Chegg tutors always take sides of student without listening to tutors who get equally abused from students trying to take advantage of free lessons
    They are unfair and have the one strike you are out tutor mentality
    They will randomly take away your tutoring access for a week with no notice talk about loss of income

    Advice to Management

    Give top tutors an incentive to stay with your company and stop being so harsh over emails
    They have the one strike and you're out mentality which i dont mind if its the case with new tutors but tutors who have been with your company for 3 and have over 200 positive reviews if you come at them then its very disheartening

    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.

    I worked at Chegg part-time (Less than a year)

    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.
