    Advice to Management

    Engage with employees, work along side of them not via reports and numbers.

    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...

      I have been working at Lyft full-time

      Pros

      - Positive atmosphere; people are great to work with. - creative space to innovate and help the company to be even better - A continuing movement - Dog friendly - team oriented environment - commute package/Lyft credit to use for rides to work - Insurance 100% covered for employees and 75% for dependents - able to be yourself, have fun, and make money while doing it!

      Cons

      The location in downtown Nashville! The traffic here can be so terrible especially downtown. I would have to say traffic would be a con for any business here in Nashville, TN.

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

      Pros

      * Company culture is absolutely amazing. Really bright and focused individuals work here and the office is absolutely stunning. * The catered meals, fully stocked kitchen, cold brew tap and consistent happy hours keep employees really happy. * "Free" rides are cool, but it ended up getting taken out of paychecks so maybe not so cool. * The people were what made the job worthwhile.

      Cons

      * Pay was not sufficient in order to happily live in the Bay Area. Definitely below industry standard. * Lack of actual transparency. Lots of news kept in the upper division of the company and not dispersed to all. * Disconnect between support and upper management.

      Advice to Management

      Transparency is of utmost importance. Don't keep news quiet until the moment you drop it. Upper management can do a better job period.
