    I have been working at Lyft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - flat org, no egos - great opportunity for growth - bandwidth, manager always checks in to see if you are overwhelmed or need help - close with lead/management = great opportunity for both parties to grow together and learn from each other, hands off but there when you need - mgmnt always has your best interest in mind and will fight for you - mgmnt goes out of her way to bring culture to office, she genuinely cares...

    I have been working at Lyft full-time

    Pros

    Solid PM, data, and eng orgs Health insurance not bad, Lyft credit is good Generally good execution and things move fast Lots of experienced leadership joining from other companies

    Cons

    Feels penny smart and pound foolish: No 401k match, low salary compared to other companies Focus on feelings and sentiment over practicality and quality (ie things like car quality) Not sure what the local teams do and why we have so many of them. People get defensive when this is asked. It's not like we are managing different countries with different cultures, this is cities in the same country. Not a fun environment....

    Advice to Management

    Pay at the top of the market or at least close to it. SF is a competitive market. What's the next thing? Ride share in the US is nearly saturated. We need new verticals and adjacent businesses. Don't hold all hands so late in the afternoon.

    I have been working at Lyft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Huge opportunity for impact all across the company -Great blend of product leadership expertise from Goog/FB and operational expertise from transportation behemoths. -The person sitting next to you really wants to be there and generally believes in the vision.

    Cons

    -Hyper growth has lead to kingdom building and posturing amongst head butting executives. -Your experience may vary by organization. The major levers of the business are allocated resources that some groups see pulled.

    Advice to Management

    You have done an outstanding job managing growth at such a breakneck speed. Double down on your culture investment - this is a huge part of what brings the vision together amidst the noise of scaling the business and the rideshare market.
