What is the salary like at Perlego?

Pros

- Transparent leadership: no question is off limits, the management team clearly want everyone to know what's going on and feel empowered to have a say. For example we have weekly whole company meetings to share wins and struggles. and the company has a relatively open insight on salaries and team performance. - Having impact: It's not something we actually talk about much, but bringing books to students at a cheaper price is having a huge impact on the great minds of tomorrow. We have doctors, engineers, artists, and countless other students on the platform who're learning their trade and that feels pretty empowering. - Work balance: Despite being a fast growing startup the team doesn't have that 'constantly stressed' vibe you often see. We're well staffed, well structured, and focussed on maintaining a healthy culture. - Central London office + a ton of space: I didn't really appreciate this when applying, but the office location by Chancery Lane tube station is a gem. We work in a super high ceilinged room that feels like Hogwarts, making it actually a pleasure to be here. No way of writing this without sounding cliched, but the people are amazing. We're a young and diverse team (20+ nationalities) who choose to stay behind to play games together, practice radical candor with giving feedback, and genuinely want newcomers to feel like they're part of the team by the end of week one. My favourite part of the culture so far? - we all break for lunch at the same time and eat as one big team

Cons

Classic 'fast growing company' challenges around process and having enough time in the day, but we seem to handle the pressure well. The team is full of outgoing characters from all over the world, I see that as an amazing perk but if you're used to a quiet office full of water-cooler chat then be ready to shake it up! Again also a perk if you look at it in the right way, but we're growing fast so the career progression isn't super obvious. If you come in with the mindset that it's partly on you to figure out where to add value to the business I think you'll quickly succeed.

Advice to Management

You're already doing this, but focus on keeping the culture as we grow the team. Big fan of the on-boarding flow (meet every dept. head in week one, buddy system), keep that up.

and the company has a relatively open insight on salaries and team performance.

Does Perlego offer a weekly bonus?

Pros

- A young, highly motivated, fairly open and ambitious team. - Because of the size of the company you have the opportunity to directly see the impact of your work - Growing focus on culture and collaboration - Beautiful office space - Free Monday breakfast & bi-weekly team Lunch - Sponsored gym membership - Team socials & activities Being able to help create something of real value and be surrounded by inspiring, talented, hard-working people. Perlego is my second design-role job and I've grown (and continue to grow) a lot since starting, due to the patience and investment from the management team.

Cons

- If you work within a medium-large team/a lot of people depend on your work, 'flexible working hours quickly become less flexible' - I started as an intern finishing my final module, when the team was fairly small. Because there was a scarcity of time and resources, I sometimes struggled to receive the guidance and mentorship I was looking for at the time. There has previously been a lack of communication. (I could have benefited from more frequent and solution-based feedback) *Its work noting that this has/is continuing to change and there are now bi-weekly one-to-ones with your managers focused and improving you and your work. . . Although everyone at Perlego is supportive, It is a very fast-paced, high-intensity environment. Everyone is busy and hardworking, so if you're starting as a junior, expect most of your development and learnings to be self-led, however, you will be surrounded by a talented team always willing to do what they can to help :)

Advice to Management

Keep investing in culture and communication and continue to be open and transparent 👍🏾
