    I have been working at SideCar part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible time
    Set your own price
    Riders can favorite you
    Riders know the price up front
    1 hour 1 on 1 training of new drivers
    Drivers can work their way up to become a Captain which gives more sources of income

    Cons

    Not as popular as Uber or Lyft, but gaining
    Sometimes slow to respond to offers to drivers
    Need to better explain promotions
    Starting as a driver is not an ideal career path to move up in the company [but should it?]

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through on your promises. You've done decent so far, but you need to keep the drivers happy or there's no one to drive the riders you're trying to grow your market in.

    I have been working at SideCar full-time

    Pros

    Sidecar is a small company that's making an increasingly large impact on the world. This gives individual employees a unique opportunity to make a huge difference. The transportation space itself presents incredibly interesting problems and the Sidecar team is well-equipped to solve them. It's an honor to work with such smart and dedicated people every day.

    Cons

    The highly-competitive nature of the ridesharing space can lead to a lot of stress. There's a lot of discouraging noise in the Silicon Valley that makes it tough to stay focused as an individual and as a team. Our competitors have massive marketing budgets which make our lives difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to ramp up our marketing. Our products are superior to those of our competitors, but most people don't realize that. Additionally, steeper growth would increase employee NPS/retention and allow the engineering team to spend more time fixing existing bugs/scale issues rather than constantly having to re-invent everything.
