Pros

Interesting product. Interesting technology. Fun people.

Cons

No vision. Upper management has no management experience. No decisions were being made more than 2 weeks into the future. Poor planning in general. Overspending on unnecessary items, underinvesting on morale and employee benefits.

    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.
