I worked at Chegg full-time

Pros

It's a fun culture. The target audience (college students) is great. The team is strong.

Cons

Chegg is solely focused on monetizing its customers and forgot about creating a relationship with them that's mutually beneficial. Everything they do is about making an extra buck from a college kid. Students are smart and they see through this.

Advice to Management

Build a relationship with your customers and it will earn you far more in revenue that selling ads on your website or in the Chegg boxes.

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

    Pros

    Amazing coworkers who go above and beyond to help you.
    Free lunches, nice parties HR sets up in cafeteria area (if your'e lucky enough to attend)

    Cons

    Your life at Chegg depends on what team and manager you have. If you're in Engineering do not expect promotions without begging for it, and if you are lucky to get promoted, the compensation is not comparable to the industry.

    work life balance is non-existent, especially during rush which does not seem to end. You are either working long hours to support the rush period or you are preparing for rush. Again, this is more extreme depending on what team you are on.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize top talent, and bring in more engineers to support teams. Most of the important work is done by a small number of people - spread out the work.
