SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Chegg Inc. (CHGG), the Smarter Way to Student, was named as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces for Women by Great Place to Work and FORTUNE. The list recognizes companies whose female employees report equally positive experiences as other employees, no matter their role within the organization. The ranking considers the extent to which women trust leaders and feel respected as well as the fairness of workplace decisions and level of camaraderie among the team.
