    Former Intern, less than 1 year

    An amazing summer internship

    Sep 2, 2014 - Software Engineer Intern in Mountain View, CA

    Pros

    Spectacular Mission Tons of responsibility The smartest people I've ever worked with Great office/company culture A bunch of great perks and free food I learned a ridiculous amount at Coursera because of great mentors and their willingness to give interns a lot of responsibility. As an intern I did basically the same job as a full-time employee and was an integral part of the team rather than just a satellite. Courserans are as friendly as they are brilliant and I wouldn't have wanted to spend the summer any other way.

    Cons

    It was a great summer, nothing really to complain about. If anything, a few more intern events would have been awesome, I really enjoyed the sailing outing.

Look at the stats. -Business model always changing -Poor confidence in leadership -Awful change management. Even after several re-orgs leadership still hasn't figured out how to roll out major changes without tanking culture.

    No job security

    Pros

    The only 2 things good about Coursera is that they pay well and there is work life balance(apparently)

    Cons

    No job security Employees can hardly put their point across as the manager would then give them a silent treatment and that's horrible in a remote work space. The work culture in the Indian team is pathetic (not too sure about the other countries)
