    I worked at Lyft (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good base pay, flexibility and lots of opportunity to meet new people. If you are looking for a way to make extra cash use this. It's way better than Uber while there is a base.

    Cons

    It's kind of crappy that you could be at risk for legal action. Be wary.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on driver fun and more on coverage

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

    Pros

    -Great product and brand.
    -Upper management really cares and listen to both employees and the community
    -Good pay (for my role at least)
    -Free lunch, monthly commuter benefits
    -Free Lyft credits occasionally
    -Positive and encouraging work environment
    -barely any micro management.

    *************
    I just want to clarify a few things with regards to the driver complaints below:

    -It is very difficult to get a low rating with our system. A 1 star or 3 star rating doesn't bring down the overall average as much as one would think. You would have to be earning low ratings consistently and over a long period of time (months) for the system to really start lowering your overall star ratings.

    -We have a very big community of drivers and passengers, sometimes it can take a little longer for support to reach out. But by no means are we singling any body out. Support folks work the hardest and often after hours, so it's understandable. Patience is a virtue my friend.

    -Unfortunately, sometimes the passenger experience can be unpleasant. That's why we allow you, the driver to rate the passenger after each ride. If you give him/her a low rating, that person won't be matched up with you again.

    -With regards to navigation, drivers should always ask the passenger if there's a route they prefer. But navigation could also mean your driving style. Safety will always be the #1 priority for our passengers and drivers.

    Cons

    Not really any, just typical growing startup problems. Some politics, but which company doesn't have politics?

    Advice to Management

    Keep being data-driven and focus on the product and building amazing community.
