    I have been working at Lyft (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees value one another and work together as one team to accomplish goals and drive results as we support our internal and external customers. Work/life balance, great benefits, empowering culture, innovative and creative co-workers working alongside you - and the ability to truly partner to create and influence and leave your mark - just to name a few!

    Cons

    Lyft is located in downtown Nashville, parking is available and traffic can be heavier at times, something to consider

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing - continue to empower and upLYFT your employees and our customers to reach out fullest potential and drive creative solutions.

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

    Pros

    -Huge opportunity for impact all across the company
    -Great blend of product leadership expertise from Goog/FB and operational expertise from transportation behemoths.
    -The person sitting next to you really wants to be there and generally believes in the vision.

    Cons

    -Hyper growth has lead to kingdom building and posturing amongst head butting executives.
    -Your experience may vary by organization. The major levers of the business are allocated resources that some groups see pulled.

    Advice to Management

    You have done an outstanding job managing growth at such a breakneck speed. Double down on your culture investment - this is a huge part of what brings the vision together amidst the noise of scaling the business and the rideshare market.

    Pros

    Strong culture and very mission driven. Especially happy with efforts on diversity and inclusion.

    Very happy and no cons that I can think of. Building a new office here in NYC which is exciting, so for the time being we are working out of a smaller space.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the transparency. Great to be a part of a strong culture and working with other fantastic engineers.
