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

    Pros

    High growth, interesting working, great office, good perks

    Cons

    In my one year there, the theme that repeatedly showed up is that in such a high growth phase, there is no process in place to think about you as an employee. They couldn't care less about you. Executives repeatedly speak about the culture of the company: uplift others, make it happen, but the reality is a) uplift others in practice is more like uplift yourself, bc whoever does the best job of marketing themselves is...

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Eliminate the politics. And don't forget, your employees are your biggest asset. The product would be nothing without them

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

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic from insurance to snacks. Casual office environment is easy to be comfortable in.

    Cons

    Company has a serious lack of structure and accountability. Leadership does not instill confidence in their workforce. The casual office environment tends to encourage inappropriate and unprofessional behavior among colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Calibrate your leadership so they are on the same page. Leadership is often not working together and it sends conflicting signals to your workforce.

    I have been working at Lyft full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

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

      Pros

      -Co-workers are the best support system you've got there. There is a total team vibe here. You have each others backs for the most part. -Snacks/food assortment is pretty good. Minimizes how much you would spend downtown trying to get lunch and all that. But don't count on that for too long as when a start-up company goes public, they drop all of these types of fringe benefits. -You're held accountable for YOUR...

      Cons

      -TERRIBLE workforce management when it comes to forecasting company needs during the holidays. Expect last minute answers when it comes to Holiday schedules. Lyft, you can make this better. Make it happen. -Scheduling. Your schedule is based on "work performance" and "productivity". Which leads to the 4th item in the cons list. Don't expect to be given the schedule you want. They change your schedule every 6 months....

      Advice to Management

      Just about any startup company can boast about it's office culture. You guys have something great going here. These are typical growing pains that I've seen with previous startups. So use that knowledge and learn from it. Your work force management team needs to be better. Hands down. When you tell your employees two weeks ahead of Thanksgiving, that you still haven't figured out who will get holidays off, it just...
