    I worked at Uber for less than a year

    Pros

    Great very young and bright talents, but these guys are not the ones sitting on the "A" or "C" suites... Flexible working hours, but it also means, very late hours and weekends, if you are single great! If you have a family...forget it. Offer very competitive package for you to join = "never vested stocks", fair salary, fair benefits and some "considered cool" perks. Hiring team does make a great job for... you to jump from whatever great job you have to "join Uber's mission" to change the world...

    Cons

    Turn over is about a year, a couple of months in, its easy to realize the brainwash and all reckless decisions; Senior Management are a bunch of "start ups" professionals; HR team is very weak and has no say at all on restructuring process. HR is not functional at all. No Voice and no brain. The same way they hire, launch in a city they dismiss people, very reckless.

    Advice to Management

    HR should be independent and do their work. The whole "A" suite include TK should go away and hire some serious management. Finance should be lead by a professional.

    Pros

    Great place to work and amazing benefits

    Cons

    a little stagnant with growth

    Advice to Management

    Provide more growth to employees that deserve it instead of long tenured employees just for the sake of the time they've worked.
