Fun and good place to work
Course Manager (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – July 19, 2016
I loved my time working here. The company does good work and provides an excellent work environment. They give you enough freedom to really do your job, they don't micromanage, the work itself is enjoyable and provides positive change in the world, and you get quite a bit of free stuff. My coworkers were generally great to work with; they were friendly, intelligent, and competent. If your work allows it, you can frequently work from home, but you wouldn't want to, since the office is such a nice place to work.
Honestly, there are only three cons:
1. Job security. I've seen quite a bit of turnover, not all of it voluntary.
2. The level of group-think in regards to far-left social-progressivism (think SJW's) that pervades the bay area is quite strong here, which would be a large culture shock for anyone not from the West Coast. It's not that hard to avoid opportunities for this to come up, though, and it doesn't cost you much of anything to ignore it when it does.
3. The SF Bay area is almost comically expensive to live in.
Everything else was about as good as I could reasonably expect any job to ever be.
