    Misleading and Toxic

    Pros

    Perks are good. That's it

    Cons

    Where to begin... First and foremost, I would hope anyone in HR would read this: I make this very loud and clear when people say this place is toxic, it is TOXIC. Management doesn't intervene into coworker quarrels unless someone from HR brings up a complain from an employee and then that's where they intervene. There is also issues with management that support the kind of people who do barely the bare minimum and give flack for those who go the extra mile to prove themselves as actual employees that want to work to do better. I've had issues amongst colleagues that plot and snitch behind their fellow colleagues to bring them down just because those people don't want to do better themselves. Lyft promotes the idea of "everyone is a family", "unity", "solidarity", and other buzzwords to reel in candidates to work for them. What they really do is not what they say they do. There is no one to oversee how employees are treating other employees like enemies and it makes it hard for those who want to change the tide in the workplace, feel threatened, anxious, and demoralized. Nepotism, lack of integrity, maturity, and yet they make us take all those dumb video trainings to not condone that.

    Great job for part-time employment and schedule flexibility

    Jan 11, 2023 - Uber/Lyft Driver in Orlando, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Pay feels commensurate with the work being done - Fun atmosphere that you dictate as the driver - Flexibility of schedule and lifestyle balance as you choose when you drive - Independence to dictate the overall driving experience for your passengers - Frequent enough bonus cycles for drivers to make more

    Cons

    - No upward mobility, as you'll generally be paid the same as someone who just signed up to use the app no matter how long you have been driving - Although the pay most often feels commensurate with the work, the knowledge of how much Lyft charges the passengers do not add up - either charge the passengers less or pay the drivers a higher percentage - Each Terms of Service agreement update requires detailed scrutiny to understand the steps to opt out of unfair policies being implemented, as each one typically takes more and more rights away from the drivers. - On occasion there are few bonus cycles available, or they are available only at extremely inconvenient hours.
