I have been working at Uber full-time (Less than a year)
Benefits are amazing. You get enough uber credits for 15 trips in your work city (about $300 for me) that you can also use for uber eats, a fitness credit, a phone credit, and free breakfast and lunch during the work week. Depending on the team it's also quite relaxed, so long as I'm getting my work done my manager is perfectly happy. Also, unlimited time off is actually really good if your manager is chill. I also work in infra, and the career opportunity is amazing. The engineers I work with quite simply are brilliant.
There were a bunch of layoffs when I was starting out & lots of worry about the current company stock price. The company isn't completely structurally sound so starting at this job you're taking a certain amount of risk. Like job security is non-existent here; there's little caring about the employees future. ALSO they don't match 401k which in this day and age is crazy.
Advice to Management
Match 401k and try not to do mass firings.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Uber (Seattle, WA) in January 2020.
I got contacted by a recruiter in LinkedIn and he asked me to apply to a specific opening.
I passed the phone screening and I got an email to arrange onsite interview. However, 2 days later, the same recruiter told me that they changed their mind and they won't proceed further, claiming that they found another candidate.
This is unfair and very unprofessional practice. I feel offended
