I have been working at Getaround as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Give you lots of responsibilities and an opportunity to make a splash. Software engineering interns got a lot of assignments that were shipped and big parts of the website; marketing interns received a wide variety of things to do that immediately affected the success of the company.

Cons

Lots of down time; the provided food was sometimes not amazing; other than that, the cons are few

Advice to Management

Be more prompt in communicating

    I worked at Getaround full-time

    Pros

    - Easy mission to get behind
    - Lots of motivated people working at Getaround
    - Great office space
    - Interesting projects and initiatives on the go

    Cons

    - Negative workplace culture, there's lots of employee gossip and infighting
    - Founders have unrealistic expectations about how many hours people should work and care more about the numbers than the people working for them
    - Zero insight into management decisions
    - Founders seem a little too comfortable lying or manipulating the truth
    - Mismanaged finances led to several rough bumps
    - Way below market rate salaries and lots of disparities between what people on the same team might be paid
    - While I was there, several team members were all leaving or considering leaving at the same time, it's hard to stay committed when so many people are jumping ship at once
    - Managers refuse to cede control over certain things, which results in an obscene amount of inefficiency throughout the company

    Advice to Management

    Work on building a culture where people feel appreciated, are paid properly and create a real bond between employees and management to stop the infighting.
