How is diversity at Uber?

Pros

Diversity. I have worked 10 years in the CPG industry and I have never encountered such a rich and diverse environment as I have seen at Uber. There are people from so many different backgrounds and life/work experiences that I can see why Uber turns out to be such an innovative and pioneering organization. The culture of diversity and inclusion is so strong at Uber and practiced by the leadership team. On top of that, I can clearly see the impact of my work has in the world and makes me happy to see I am part of it. Last, but not least, amazing benefits. Unlimited PTO, Uber cash credits every month, and so many more!

Cons

I don't see as much as a downside of working at Uber, but I think it's worth mentioning it. Working at Uber may sometimes mean that there will be "challenges" from society, family members, regulators, etc. I think if you believe that Uber is trying to do the right thing (and the safety report released in the US at the end of 2019 is a good example) you don't see that as a "con", but an opportunity to lead the way and make it right by everyone.

Advice to Management

Continue being transparent and aiming to always do the right thing.

Does Uber provide assistance to those with physical or mental disabilitiies?

Pros

My coworkers were amazing. We produced well as a group and had a ton of fun.

Cons

Many were contractors and the difference between the two groups caused tension and anxiety. We were all putting in 60+ hours.

How is race or ethnicity talked about at Uber?

Pros

-great benefits -free breakfast/lunch/snacks/drinks -younger employees (pro and con) -casual dress -free swag -unlimited PTO (used to be for all employees, now only salaried employees)

Cons

-no work/life balance: if you like to have a social/personal life outside of work, UF is not the place for you. Good luck getting time to yourself, especially if you work as a lower level team member in account management. "Uber Holidays" do not apply to Uber Freight, and you will often hear "freight never sleeps" as an excuse. If you are salaried, you will not be paid overtime and are typically expected to work on holidays. If you are hourly, you will have to fight with your other coworkers and hope that your manager will let you have the day off. -Toxic work environment: did you hear someone saying something inappropriate on the floor and you want to report it to HR? Are they an L3+ employee? If so, your complaints will go unheard. Management has been reported to HR for everything from sexual harassment to racist remarks to asking other employees for drugs on the floor and get a slap on the wrist. Lower level employees have been fired on the spot for an off-color joke. Are you someone that isn't a straight, cisgender white man? Enjoy staying in a lower level position with pay that is much lower than your straight white male counterparts! -Young employees: Expect to have someone recruited straight out of college to be your manager, even when there were plenty of people more qualified and with seniority in the office or on your team already. Oh, and expect to train your new manager and continue coaching them throughout your time below them. Constant restructures: Don't get too comfortable, your team is always changing! You may get one account, you may have close to 20 accounts, and those accounts may constantly be changing due to frequent reorgs and restructures. Useless management: Do you love being micromanaged by someone who does absolutely nothing and/or isn't at all qualified to be your manager? Then this job is for you! Expect to have a new manager on a rotating basis. In the 2+ years I was at UF, I had 6 managers. Only two of them fit the bill for a "good manager". White out culture: Uber loves to boast about how inclusive they are, but the reality is that most employees of color are in low level positions when white men are in charge. Yes, there are ERGs like Pride, Black at Uber, etc - but don't let that fool you. As mentioned above, if you are not a white straight man, you will not be paid or treated as well as your white male counterparts. Slackers, slackers, slackers: Expect to pull your weight, plus the weight of countless others who can slide by doing less than the bare minimum. Expect to be drained, exhausted, and overwhelmed while your coworker hangs out and shoots pool with someone from sales and marks it off as an "important meeting" on the calendar. High school all over again: If you loved high school drama, maybe UF is the place for you. With a younger working population, Uber feels more like UHS rather than a legitimate corporate office most of the time.

Advice to Management

Get a grip. Stop putting people into high level positions who have no idea what they're doing. Stop ignoring complaints about high level team members. Stop underpaying and undermining employees who are not straight white men. Stop sending out overly aggressive emails about "working harder" when everyone is already overworked. This company used to be a great company to work for, but I feel like I've escaped an abusive relationship/cult. Your employees are suffering and their pleas for help are falling on deaf ears.
