Former Employee - Senior Community Associate

I worked at Lyft full-time for more than a year

Great company to work for. Excellent leadership team. Always felt included/heard by management. Great opportunity to contribute to building the community.

Like any company there are shortcomings. Fast growth means there can be growing pains and also going public changes the corporate culture in a major way.
