    I have been working at Uber full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Super talented people are flocking to Uber from the Bay Area's top tech companies - Things move so much faster here than anywhere else I've worked - you'll be able to get much more done - Legitimately changing the world

    Cons

    - Long hours (but if they feel like work, you're doing something wrong)

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up the focus on making a great product, ignore the haters.

    I have been working at Uber part-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules and can turn on and off whenever you want. A really good tie over until the next job.

    Cons

    Wear and tear on car. Sometimes the App has problems such as the server going down. I had to cancel a ride once since it went down and their was no one to contact for help (checked website for a call center which did not exist).

    I have been working at Uber full-time

    Pros

    Amazing environment to work in. Very fast paced with the best talent from across all possible areas of technology.

    Cons

    They are spread really thin and trying to tackle everything all at once. It can have a huge payoff though if even a good percentage of the ideas are successful.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice. They communicate well and keep everyone updated pretty regularly. If anything they are a little too communicative.

    Pros

    The environment: everyone in the office talks to one another and every month or so a launch party is held with food and beverages.

    Cons

    Most people who work here are contract and the pay is not the best.

    Advice to Management

    Hire fewer people, pay them more.

    I worked at Uber full-time

    Pros

    You can pick up a high volume of passengers.

    Cons

    Uber is very tricky and manipulative. They exploit both passengers and drivers. They are far less transparent than other ride sharing companies.

    Advice to Management

    Don't force drivers to adopt an "uber" phone even if they opt out and then still charge them for it!

    Pros

    This is a fast-paced company. I love their attention to detail and care of their employees. The hours are flexible, and good for a part-timer. Being a driver is bogus. I am making less than a year ago. Friendly customers mostly, and great pay

    Cons

    I am new and sometimes feel it is not worth it at all. Their fares seem rather low compared to the amount of work involved. The last time, I drove 30 minutes to pick somebody up that just wanted to go to a bar, 5 mins away. Total cost was $5 and after Uber's deduction, I was left with nothing. Considering the wear and tear on my car, I am not sure if the total costs outweighs the benefits

    Advice to Management

    Increase benefits, protection, and reimbursement. More friendly customer service. More training also. Uber needs to stand behind their drivers, or at least investigate customer complaints carefully.
