    I worked at Uber full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great products; Uber car services, UberEats, etc. A company bringing convenience and filling a need for society. The ex-team are visionaries and highly skilled and proven innovators.

    Cons

    Middle management in the corp offices do not have proper oversight over spending, hiring, and personnel management and many put into a management role have no experience in managing staff and it propagates because their manager has no experience managing either. HR is basically nonexistent. They really only have Recruiters. Growth and change is too fast and frequent that it's difficult to get stability. There... is bias and preferential treatment among some groups. Work/life balance is a huge struggle, typical of a fast growing company but amplified at Uber 10 fold. Was the worst work experience of my 25+ career.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training and oversight of the middle management. Get involved. Don't assume they know what they're doing. Ask why so turn over is high. READ what employee put on their manager's evaluation. Follow up on the input on all the culture surveys.
