    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 have been working at Chegg part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the pay is a fixed rate of $20/hr

    Cons

    They made up absurd TOS violations which never occurred and even said they warned me about them, none of this is true or can be proven, I was a top rated tutor, they terminated me saying I had LOW FEEDBACK when I had 41-4 positive-negative reviews! Absolutely pathetic! They ignore all emails and there is no way to reach anyone. How can you treat people like this? The CEO Dan Rosensweig blocked me on Twitter when I told him what happened! Yes, I'm serious. They are a joke!

    Advice to Management

    fire your ceo and restructure your company, learn how to treat people with dignity and respect, especially if they work for you!!!

    Pros

    Really wants to feel like a family, cares deeply about its employees and the students they serve. Values work-life balance, company is in super high growth mode with lots of runway. CEO believes strongly in investing in people vs hiring from the outside.

    Cons

    Old IT systems, a little fragmented in structure- typical high growth pains of knowing what to keep and what to throw out. Especially as new people join from other tech companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Adopt ideas from newcomers while preserving the amazing culture and family vibe.
