I have been working at Uber full-time (More than a year)

(Translated from English)

Pros

Alle stadsteams werken als kleine start-ups. Er is geen grens aan wat je kunt bereiken en het bedrijf geeft je de vrije loop. Je komt er op een dagelijkse basis te werken met de slimste mensen uit de hele wereld. Er is geen 'politiek' bij dit bedrijf, alleen uitzonderlijk gemotiveerde mensen die proberen te verbeteren hoe mensen over de hele wereld zich verplaatsen.

Cons

Proberen om de wereld te veranderen met een klein team kan veeleisend zijn. Wees voorbereid op de (Uber)rit van je leven als je bij dit bedrijf gaat werken. Enorme groei en enorme schaalbaarheid vereisen een enorme focus en een enorme inzet. Om 5 uur naar huis gaan is er niet bij en je zult altijd deals moeten sluiten.

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

    Pros

    I love being able to work around truly passionate people who are ready to change the world. The culture is great, free snacks and food is big plus. I had the opportunity to take ownership of projects within my first month

    Cons

    The hours are much longer than any other job I've worked in, but this is expected to change as we continue hiring more help

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I'm excited to see the company grow and mature and hope that we don't lose the strong culture we have now

    I worked at Uber full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Uber is new modern company! The best job I've ever had. The atmosphere, the people, the management, the company, the partners! I love Uber! This was the first job I had where I woke up and wanted to go to work. It's a technology company not ride-share your given a MacBook Air laptop you clock in and out your phone, submit your own time cards, the kitchen is stocked and great! Need time off you got it! No is hardly ever said when it come to employees. I started when Uber Expert was contracted so we were all hired through temp services no benefits no uber credits no nothing! But all over the company we were heard and officially became Uber Employees the beginning of 2017! PTO, benefits, discounts, uber credits, oodles of appreciation from the company! I will never work for another company that isn't a Startup! I love Uber!

    Cons

    After 11 months at uber I was terminated from my position for breaking Network Data Policy by searching a celebrity! Was told via email and I texted my manager who had no knowledge of it and he confirmed and apologized. I cried, I was upset, I was hurt, I love Uber! The next day when the managers broke the news to my colleagues, they stated how "we fought for her to stay but it was so high up it was nothing we could do to save her" (I searched Beyonce Knowles, spelled wrongly I might add, and was fired for it. Did nothing but search the name with incorrect spelling and was fired) I sent countless emails to as many higher ups I could find with my personal email and they all went undelivered, I sent them all again with my Uber email address and they all went through. Shortly after my emails were sent ALL UBER ACCESS WAS CUT. I felt like I had been casted away. The company I loved, the people I loved, I was a ambassador for Uber, and with the decision from someone higher up on the ladder who doesn't know me, who doesn't know I was on NATIONAL leader boards for customer satisfaction that means the most to them in the Uber Expert position, who didn't see google reviews with my name typed in them praising my service, who wouldn't listen to my managers that fought for me just to say no she's outta here and not give me the opportunity to explain myself just cut the rope on me is very wrong! There are employees that steal from the company, misuse the laptops we are given, disrespect driver partners, etc. and they get to stay, BUT in the search bar I misspelled Beyonce Knowles and hundreds of accounts come up and I don't even go to any of them (because they can see everything we do and they know I didn't) but I'm fired. Uber you have to do better.

    Advice to Management

    My management is the bomb.com, BUT TO WHO EVER IS HIGHER UP. Don't do people like that! And not even be real enough to hear them out! I had to deal with rude, obnoxious, disrespectful, sexists, racist, and nasty driver partners with a SMILE ON MY FACE and give them the best customer service and sympathy! And the one time I make a mistake you throw me away and not give me the opportunity to plead my case or write my wrongs and ignore the managers who molded me to be the best SUPER PUMPED UBER EXPERT I could be and fight to keep me! I will continue to use Uber because I believe in Uber, and I will continue to reapply for my job back at Uber because that's where I belong! And if there is someone at Uber who can is reading this review and can make something happen to help me, I am I'm from the Dallas market, the only Uber Expert with this story they can tell you exactly who I am!
