    Pros

    - Course Hero's work environment is an ecosystem which breeds innovative thinking and initiative taking.
    - Great ideas are not great until executed well. At Course Hero, the emphasis is always on execution and taking responsibility for what you own.
    - Course Hero gives you an opportunity to fail and learn from it. At most start ups there is very little room for failure. Course Hero on the other hand has encouraged me to take risks, without the fear of failing. This sense of freedom and security has allowed me to contribute far more to the company than I have been able to in my previous jobs.
    - Even though this is a start up, I have still been able to maintain a very good work and personal life balance because projects are well prioritized and planned by senior management. This prevents chaos and sudden changes in plans.

    Cons

    Slowly running out of space in the current office, so might have to shift to a bigger place.

    Pros

    They can give you work.

    Cons

    They motivate you to give better answers, work hard, and finally reach a level where they pay 50% of what students pay them, and then they kick you out.
