    Great core values, poor execution and toxic work environment

    Oct 5, 2020 - Market Operations 
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    I worked for Lyft for just under 5 years on the Global Operations team and then moved to the Market Operations team. Some of the pros are getting to work with truly dedicated and talented people who love their job and love the communities we served. My coworkers helped each other, had brilliant ideas, and worked tirelessly to execute our projects regardless of level. The biggest pro is the local teams.


    Communication from HQ is not great. Often new programs would launch in our market and we'd have no idea until the public release. It was not always clear how our work locally was supporting HQ initiatives. There was a large disconnect between what was happening in San Fran and what was happening in dispersed markets. Lyft also struggles to retain and promote good talent. Despite their "commitment to diversity", as a diverse person I was often belittled, undervalued, and overlooked. I watched countless less equipped and less qualified external hires receive leadership positions over more qualified, diverse internal candidates. Despite years of "exceeds expectations" reviews, extensive previous management experience, and several advanced degrees, I received one promotion in 4 years at Lyft. I repeatedly asked what I could do to move into a more senior role and had no complaints about my work, only "the time just isn't right yet". I left because there is no room for advancement there for someone like me. Their stated values are mostly lip service and, despite repeated feedback, leadership is not open to hearing from more diverse voices. If you are not white and male, I'd stay away from Lyft.

    Great Part Time Gig

    If you drive during prime time you can really make bank which is great for people in between jobs.


    This new driver app has so many glitches. Also don't like the rating system because if you get one bad review it will completely ruin your overall score.

    Great People, Time to buckle down

    Nov 15, 2022 - Market Operations Lead 
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    The people are always the number one positive thing others have to say about Lyft and I whole heartedly second that. I love working at Lyft because of the people I work with and the mission it serves. Improving peoples lives with the world's best transportation is a hard mission to accomplish, especially in a dynamic marketplace, but it's extremely rewarding work.


    While the majority of people are great, unfortunately, Lyft has a few bad apples that are bringing the company down. We need more positive, can-do attitudes and people that aren't afraid to buckle down and make tangible impact.
