    I worked at Lyft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow and learn in the company. Was able to level up career substantially due to the amount of scrappiness all around. A lot of roles and positions are created as needed, so there's plenty of space to grow. Also, great people all around. Sometimes petty, but generally all very well meaning.

    Cons

    Main con is that a lot of people aren't direct and projects get stalled due to indecision. Some passive aggressiveness, but not enough to create a toxic environment. This unfortunately also extends to company goal setting, etc. Due to the indecisiveness, there can sometimes be a lack of clarity in direction.

    Pros

    You get to work on projects that make it on the news, and everyone you know experiences. This is very exciting.

    Cons

    I've never worked with so many rude and condescending people in my life. The culture here is very toxic. Rideshare as a model has no ability to be profitable or to grow.

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

    Pros

    - Great benefits, although no bonus and no 401k matching - Flexible schedules with good work life balance - Things are always changing which keeps work interesting and challenging

    Cons

    - Leaders and HR people put in roles with no previous experience. Even the CHRO hasn't been a CHRO before, but Google experience gets you put on top at Lyft. - Mean girl culture is REAL, especially in recruiting and especially for people of color. Gossip, playing favorites, throwing others under the bus were all qualities of the recruiting leaders at Lyft. These issues are never addressed and actually get rewarded via promotions. - The closed door promotion process is ridiculous. If you aren't out there brown nosing, you never get promoted. It's all about you who know at Lyft .
