I have been working at Grammarly full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Grammarly has ambitious plans to perfect all written English for the world’s 1+ billion English speakers. It is a small, but exceptional, team with a passion for life and language, impeccable technical skills, and tremendous drive. Our San Francisco headquarters is centrally located in a shared office space replete with startups, and our vacation plan and benefits are very competitive.

Cons

Growing companies typically experience "growing pains," but Grammarly seems to defy this precedent. The management team is cohesive and open to feedback, but with a very clear vision for the company's future. As a result, all team members work long hours (with pleasure!) to realize these impressive goals. We truly feel like we are a part of something special.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work! It is really special to work at a company where you feel like your ideas are heard and appreciated. Grammarly's management team truly knows what they are doing. They get along great and encourage new ideas and processes.

    I have been working at Grammarly full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've been working here for many years now. Very warm work environment, people focused on doing what is right for Grammarly to succeed, ethical dimension with data-driven decision making, emphasis on employees staying engaged, accountable. Company is on a very good trajectory, has the right energy behind the managing team, and the quality of people needed to make it happen.

    Cons

    Startup feel can have cons. Sometimes, there is some lack of process or system clarity internally, sometimes, lack of system itself. With pro-activeness, eagerness to drive change and offer suggestions, asking questions and following through on them, these startup cons can indeed be turned into opportunities and policies changes in Grammarly, and this is what has kept me engaged and enthusiastic along the way.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path we've been on. Tap into the ideas and expertise of the talent we have. Stay focused and we'll hit the goal.
