How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

At edX, getting your work done is very important, but the company also understands that your life and well being outside of work is directly correlated to productivity during work hours. This is clearly communicated across all levels and departments. There is also lots of company wide fun activities that help us get to know our coworkers outside.
