I have been working at Getaround as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Give you lots of responsibilities and an opportunity to make a splash. Software engineering interns got a lot of assignments that were shipped and big parts of the website; marketing interns received a wide variety of things to do that immediately affected the success of the company.

Cons

Lots of down time; the provided food was sometimes not amazing; other than that, the cons are few

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more prompt in communicating

    Pros

    - Great company goals and mission to bring car sharing to the masses.
    - Company has clear short and long term objectives. Ideas, developments, and progress are very transparent.
    - Perfect environment for people who work well in teams but are also self starters.
    - Some rewarding remote work opportunities once you prove you are effective offsite.
    - Nice office environment with some nice perks and really great energetic team of employees.
    - Diverse culture with team outings and positive office activities like hack-a-thons and happy hours.
    - Not a "bro" party but knows how to party.
    - Some really fun cars available to drive!

    Cons

    - Young management who learns as they go, but lends to more collaboration rather than "god" style top down politics.
    - Raises and promotions are rare since the executives don't seem to have a set schedule of reviewing employees.
    - "No nesting" seating policy makes some employees feel like a lack of place in the office and lends to the idea of temporary existence.
    - Company went through some growing pains, but seems to have streamlined priorities now. Glad I weathered the storm!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Learn how to delegate and get out of the way of progress.
    - Develop better on-boarding and give employees a better sense of belonging.
    - Connect better with employees and make them feel like they aren't just tools to enact your vision/dream.

    I have been working at Getaround full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I've been at a few startups. This is probably one of the best places I've worked.

    Amazing team with a great culture where people actually care about what they do. Everyone brings a work hard, play hard attitude and gets along very well. Very flat organization structure where all departments collaborate daily and you can really make an impact.

    There aren't a lot of politics and not much interoffice drama, although about a year ago there were a few difficult personalities that caused a lot of interoffice strife.

    The office environment is very open and everyone gets top-of-the-line hardware and a headset. It's really a great place to work and really rewarding--but practice your foosball if you plan on joining!

    Cons

    Early on the leadership were too soft on prima donna employees who were not top performers. It negatively affected team morale and should have been dealt with swiftly.

    Otherwise policies aren't always clear but that seems to have improved. It's a startup so you there's not a lot of handholding when you're new to the team. Because of the very collaborative work-style, the office environment can be noisy at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protect the team and be decisive with people that are not a culture fit.
