    I have been working at Grammarly full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Solving a real problem that affects billions of people around the world - a category-defining company - A truly value-driven culture with a great team - still small enough for every team member to have an outsized effect on the company - company-wide offsite in Europe. Last year it was in Barcelona! - the usual perks like catered lunches, great office, great company events, health/medical benefits, exercise allowance,...

    Cons

    We can't seem to hire as quickly as we need to (which is ridiculously fast). If we can solve this issue, this rocketship will truly take off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    Pros

    - A noble mission, an ambitious vision, and an incredibly smart and dedicated team behind it all. - The perfect place to work if you want to make an impact, set a strategy, try out new ideas (and iterate on them), learn, and move at a fast pace — all the while being yourself while doing it. - NO EGOS at the top! Humble co-founders, humble CEO, humble exec team that just wants to make an awesome product people love....

    Cons

    Not really a con, but we have big goals that require a bigger team — and we need to grow to achieve them! In the meantime, there's a lot to do and not enough hours in the day to get it all done, so there are days when work-life balance is non-existent. But that dedication is recognized.

    Grammarly is an amazing place to work where you can truly feel the impact of your work and how it is helping the larger goal of the business.

The company is headed in a very exciting direction and I am so excited to be a part of the current growth!

    Cons

    - Growing company with lofty goals. Employees must be dedicated to the mission and interested in being in an environment where they will make a serious impact. That may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you are doing and invest in the team.

    Thank you for your comments, and for your contributions to our meeting those lofty goals! I am particularly taken with your mention of No Egos. I think it fair to say that this is unusual among fast-growth companies -- and that it is fundamental to Grammarly being the unique place ...

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

    Pros

    - Free catered lunch every day (different cuisines ranging from Italian to sushi) - Unlimited snacks and drinks - Company-wide off-site trip - Low ego environment - Cool office with views, comfy chairs, ping pong table, and games - Gym reimbursement - Inclusive culture (I feel like I can approach anyone in the office) - Practically no employee turnover - Mentorship program

    Cons

    Nothing to share here. I started working for Grammarly recently, and am consistently impressed by the team's talent, drive, and friendliness. At its core, the culture is definitely one centered around hard work and grit, which might not be for everyone.

    Awesome company, co-workers, and product; leadership is not afraid to support creative and experimental ideas.

    Doesn't promote a great work/life balance, not very friendly to women.

    We're helping people all over the world communicate better. That's something that we can all be really proud of. The product is awesome, and our potential for continued innovation has no limit. It's not just a grammar checker. It helps people write correctly and effectively. Also, the addressable market is huge - 2 billion people. Our leadership team is accessible, driven, and focused. They care deeply about the success...

    Cons

    We put in a lot of hours and a lot of ourselves. It's a big time/life commitment, but to me, it's worth it because we have a huge opportunity to make a huge impact on the world. It's also a challenge to find high-caliber people, so it takes a long time to fill our open roles.

    Advice to Management

    Continue personal investments in people development and product innovation.

    Pros

    Grammarly has a lot of things going for it. I spent a lot of time in both offices and had some good experiences and got perspective. Team: A lot of dedicated individuals who want to build a good product and are friendly and willing to help, welcoming atmosphere, positive attitudes even when people are frustrated Product: Interesting product to use and build with big user base, clear sense that users actually benefit...

    Cons

    Management: The tech world is a minefield of bad management, and Grammarly is no exception. Top management is obtuse and sometimes insensitive, particularly regarding women. Feedback to management is encouraged in words but not in action. My feeling is that they do not listen/respond to people except close, trusted advisers or highly-valued employees (developers). Feedback from management is often not meaningful (we like...

    Advice to Management

    In general, I think top management needs to step back and delegate more. If they are not comfortable with this, they should hire the right people. Focus more on people development and process development. We need some people who are good with conflict resolution and problem-solving among employees. I also think we must change the hiring strategy. Either focus more on development in Ukraine or hire more junior people in...

    Cons

    - Work 50-60 hours/week without WFH - Limited perks due to being bootstrapped - Lack of internal expertise in your particular field - Two offices in different time zones means you need an earlier routine to maximize overlap

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people's individual development and building this great team environment. Create more opportunities to connect with the team in the other office.
