Negative Outlook

I worked at Getaround full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Interesting product. Interesting technology. Fun people.

Cons

No vision. Upper management has no management experience. No decisions were being made more than 2 weeks into the future. Poor planning in general. Overspending on unnecessary items, underinvesting on morale and employee benefits.

    Positive Outlook

    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
