    I have been working at Coursera full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - I love working for a mission-driven company, helping people develop and transform their skills creates an overall purpose to everything we do - Culture: people are passionate, collaborative, smart and down to earth. I really enjoy working with everyone - I enjoy that we're still a start up in the sense that each individual has a big impact in shaping the company - Great diversity - Flexibility: I work full time...

    Cons

    Nothing out of the ordinary, the usual growing pains of a fast growing company. Mainly: 1) We need to create a more efficient and structured way of sharing knowledge and information 2) We need more engineering resources. Our product has SO much potential but we're a bit strapped right now due to resource shortages

    Advice to Management

    - We have an amazing culture of passionate, collaborative and smart people that are also authentic and down to earth, we really need to preserve this culture as we grow - We need to create a more efficient and structured way of sharing knowledge and information, this will be especially important as we're looking to grow substantially and are hiring new people every week.
