    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 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free catered lunch on weekdays, snacks, drinks.

    Cons

    When you are security, the Lyft employees treat you like you're a lesser employer. They don't really interact with you in the same way they would with their coworkers who make more money. Not all of them are like this, but I'd say ~40%.

    Advice to Management

    Proactively tell your engineers that the fact that they're engineers doesn't make them superior humans.

    I have been working at Lyft full-time

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Lyft has awesome values, and seeing the CEOs constantly strive to achieve the company's goals while upholding these values makes it easy to be proud to work for the company.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to move up within the company, which is a bit discouraging.

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

    Pros

    You are your own boss. Drive when you want. Stop when you want.

    Cons

    You lose money driving unless your in a city. Example: Drive 15 mi for a 5 mi ride. Pay about 5 dollars, cost to the driver at 22 cents a mile. 7. 70
    So why drive? You need to take the 54 cents a mile deductions on your taxes. That comes out as 11.20 So the net for the 35 mile trip is 8.50.

    If you have second job with a tax bill you can use the cost per mile to reduce your federal tax bill.
    The best thing to do is figure out how much you pay in taxes and drive to eliminate them. Then Stop driving, the pay is total crap.

    They don't pay bridge tolls where I live. I eat or write them off.

    Advice to Management

    Lyft, you have to charge for driving to and from pick up points. At least .15 cents a mile just to pay for gas. Also wait time between stops is way too cheap.

    Pros

    Awesome people, strong leaders and mission driven! I love going to work every day and being surrounded by such intelligent people. Because Lyft is still a smaller company there is so much work to be done which means tons of impactful work for me. Perks are great! Especially being dog friendly :)

    Cons

    Don't have any negatives to share as of now. It's a great company!

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

    Pros

    I used to enjoy working here, and I’ve tried to be optimistic, but it is no longer a place I feel valued or accomplished at anything. It’s a call center, even if you’re not working on the phones, you’re still in a call center.

    Cons

    If you’d like to be increasingly micromanaged and under-appreciated, apply here. When I say they’re looking over your shoulder while you work, I mean that literally, and people are leaving in waves for better companies in Nashville. I truly hoped I would be here for the long haul, but I cannot do so.
