Current Employee - Senior Product Manager

Pros

I’ve worked at several tech companies as a PM, both large and small, and Uber has by far been my favorite. It’s a great blend of getting the job security, pay, and benefits of an established tech... company with the fast pace and innovative focus that you’d more so expect at a startup. If you want to hone your craft as a PM and get things done, Uber is the place for you!!!

Cons

None from my point of view / experience
