    I have been working at Uber full-time

    Pros

    There are very smart talented people at Uber who care about the company. The technology that is being developed is great and this is in large part due to the hard work of individuals who are passionate about getting the company to the next stage. The technology is the best part.

    Cons

    The work conditions seem flashy, but when you realize that you are not really able to even sit down and enjoy an hour for lunch you realize the problem with Uber. It's not a good place to work if you have a family or expect to have any kind of work life balance. The management has zero respect for your time and it is not unusual to work 12 and 14 hour days and at least 1 day during each weekend. They low ball offer salaries and get rid of people that don't work well above and beyond 10 hour days. The management team has little regard for your career development and they often cut teams that don't hit aggressive milestones. If you want to come to work feeling like your job is on the line every single day regardless of how hard you work, this is the place for you. The culture is also very hostile, the idea that you should "step on toes" is part of the core values and that makes people feel justified when they throw team members under the bus. It's brutal and highly critical. The environment is very combative. Additionally, it is a Bro culture. If you want to get ahead just be sure to drink every eve and play to the egos of the right folks in the room. It works. Women need to be prepared to be very aggressive in order to move ahead. This place does not value humility or true work friendships. It's fake and forced because for some reason that's what the executives think is needed to build quickly.

    I have been working at Uber full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    High standards, but high devotion as well. They're committed to my success as much as they are their own. And man...the workplace perks are a huge plus. Feels like I'm working towards a better future for myself and my city.

    Cons

    No 401k match. I get it, they want you to invest in the company, but I'd rather have more retirement than snacks and catered food. Probably a minority opinion but still notable.
