I worked at Lyft as a contractor

Pros

There are no benefits or pros.

Cons

Don't think about their drivers on my think about their passengers their rating system sucks they give u no specific feedback so u can try and improve and don't give u enough time to improve they just cut u from the company instead I wish I had never done it degrading undermining and they make u feel like have no brain or any kind of intelligence!!!

    I have been working at Lyft (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a very flexible company to work with

    Cons

    Sometime there not enough rental cars so you have wait and when getting maintenance on those cars the wait time is crazy and sometimes you have to bring car back for the same problem and cars are not deep clean before giving to drivers and no hybrid cars available

    Advice to Management

    You guys need to get hybrid cars and more than one maintenance company to go to and better maintenance and you also need better or more people to deep clean cars before giving to drivers and driver's should have a choice in what they want to drive

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

    Pros

    The people you work with are great and the mission is inspiring. "Free" Lyft Credits was one of the best perks, although not really free as they are taxable.

    Cons

    If you're not on the tech side of the company, you're a nobody... which is reflected in compensation, career outlook, and highlighted/championed company objectives.

    The hyper growth of the company has led to an increase of managers who never should have become managers to begin with; you'll find more people leaving their bosses here than leaving their jobs. There is no concrete process to identify or remove poor managers; which usually comes down to nothing more than one's word against the other's.

    The kool aid goes sour fast here as there is a huge focus on culture, without much action to back it up – especially if you're not in their San Francisco HQ office.

    Advice to Management

    Champion the 'business side' of the company. Create a transparent and actionable system to help team members who have been paired with abusive managers.
