    I have been working at Course Hero full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    • Great pay, benefits and perks • Rewarding industry and product to work in/on • Friendly atmosphere - not high stress, no egos, no politics • Flexible work culture • Given the ability to make a direct impact on product and ship things I had a chance to join two major Bay Area tech companies but went with my gut and chose Course Hero because of the vibe and people. And I'm so, so glad I did that. Been working remotely the whole time since COVID but it's been great even so. After being here for a little bit I've noticed there are some real veterans - people who've been here 7+ years. Now I see why - it's pretty fantastic, like a best-kept secret company to work for.

    Cons

    • I legit can't think of anything. Not a single thing.

    I worked at Course Hero full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is the best company I have worked for, hands down, the people are amazing, the culture is amazing, the office is superb, there is literally no down side. Trust me, if you get the opportunity to work for them, just go for it!

    Cons

    They are stuck in my head and I think about them every time I am sad of something at work. Like that one ex that got away and you always think about them every time you have a fight with your current bf/gf and you are thinking: "I left Course Hero for this ??!"
