Approves of CEO

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

Pros

good employee perks - free food, gym, speaker series, cultural events, fitness classes, unlimited time off
work environment is fairly flexible - flexible hours, wfh
follow standard engineering practices: continuous integration/code reviews/integration tests
great CEO

Cons

Employees are mostly a treated as a head count. Does not matter what are views/opinions/goals are. Not a lot feedback from the bottom up.

Managerial level is a big big big letdown. Very common to see friends of senior leaders or people with some influence get promoted. Does not matter if the person has necessary skills or background to get the job done. This leads to a lot of frustration.

Forget about pay raises or bonuses.

Education is a tough industry to be in. Tanking stock price says it all

Advice to Management

get more bottom up feedback; occasionally show monetary appreciation
