    I have been working at DrEd.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The company got to profitability fairly quickly which is quite rare for a start-up
    - The core business model works!
    - Young, motivated set of people
    - Quite a nice, relaxed atmosphere for a start-up

    Cons

    - Company's mid-long term strategy unclear
    - Overpromising and underdelivering in terms of hiring people but then not allowing them to really fulfill their roles
    - Lack of management experience in some key functions means that decision making tends to be a bit skewed

    Advice to Management

    Be clear as soon as possible on where the company is headed, and be really upfront about the current situation and what it will take to get there.

    I have been working at DrEd.com full-time

    Pros

    The first thing I noticed at DrEd is that the team practice what they preach. There is a very open culture and everyone is incredibly genuine. The founders and management team are down to earth, normal people and are extremely approachable. The people at DrEd are ambitious and there’s a real mix of cultures and backgrounds of people, which as a combination is proving very vibrant and refreshing. It also allows for an environment where there are always new ideas or ways of looking at things that are being shared, which is great!

    Employees are given freedom to breathe, think and innovate which is massively inspiring. The company focuses its attention on its employees over targets and profit. You are definitely not a number on headcount!

    Granted, there is a risk that leaving people to their own devices may leave them unsupported or stranded. However I’ve found that the teams get on so well and the managers are so knowledgeable in their fields that actually there is a strong support system in place. Instead, the informal and friendly culture makes for a warm place to work.

    Also, the value of free breakfasts, lunches and a snazzy coffee machine cannot be overstated either!

    Cons

    Processes are kept to a minimum which sometimes means it isn’t clear who owns what. It's great that there's less process in place and admin that is required to do anything, but sometimes when you urgently need an answer and aren't sure where to find it, it can slow things down.

    I have been working at DrEd.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Clear strategy in place of what they want to achieve
    - Really open, diverse and fun team
    - The Founders care about the people who work there - they're putting in place lots of perks, free lunches, fresh fruit, there's flexible working, 10% time for personal projects, a good training budget, quite a few of the team have families - they encourage a good work life balance
    - They have an awesome new office, much better than the old one!
    - Flat structure, the Founders are pen to suggestions on improvements from anyone
    - You're working for a company who are genuinely disrupting an industry that matters

    Cons

    - They're growing quickly and a lot of change is happening at the same time, making sure that everyone still feels involved in the journey is important - this isn't always possible, but they are now getting much better at being transparent about the strategy and where we are heading, which is great! There isn't really anything negative to say!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to bring people on the journey with you and it'll be an awesome ride!
