    Pros

    Read through the reviews. This company hires well, compensates well, and really believes in what it does.

    Cons

    Since the company is constantly making acquisitions, we often have several different pieces of software implemented to do the same thing. For instance, I have 5 messaging apps installed on my PC since every business unit came in using something different and never switched to a standard. A concrete policy and process could take care of this, but no higher-ups seem to mind.

    I worked at Chegg full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    + Small company, you get to know everyone
    + Work life balance is great
    + Pay is decent- the bonuses are built into the base pay so inflated base pay which is great if you're a mediocre performer
    + People are nice for the most part
    + Building is nice and quiet in SC. Flexibility to work in SF

    Cons

    - No transparency in promotion/raises. Depends on how powerful your exec is
    - Career pathing as you get to more senior levels is non existent
    - Lots of politics. Not a lot of alignment among the businesses. Not a product run company
    - Not exciting or cool. Acquired a bunch of businesses, haven't built anything from scratch that has worked. Though stock is doing well, long term view internally is bearish.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency in promos/raises. Invest in solid execs
