    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Flywheel Software full-time

    Pros

    It was a great place under Steve Humphries, but competing with Uber turns out to be really hard.

    Cons

    New CEO caused total team turnover by bringing in an unpopular executive staff. Three months of unhappiness followed by literally the entire product and engineering team leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Probably in retrospect should have kept the CTO. Or at least brought in a new CTO who didn't strike the entire team as an enormous poser.

    Cons

    The idea is good but they're going about it all wrong. Competing with Uber is difficult enough but the main problem is the product is that it offers no benefits. -even more expensive than a regular taxi cab -taxi drivers offer terrible service -taxi drivers have a very difficult time trying to use the app -taxi's are dying and the industry will soon be gone in many places - Manifest destiny/ride share evolution...

    Advice to Management

    You NEED to figure out a way to lower the rates if you have any chances of slightly succeeding. Why would someone pay 5X more for a cab with terrible service...? Figure out a way to lower the cost so it's competitive with Uber, ONCE that's done.. MARKET the product. Zero dollars spent on marketing. Start out with San Francisco work your way to other cities if that works out. -FIND A WAY to lower the cost -MARKET MARKET...
