    I have been working at Uber for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great front line teams. Some of the best engineers I have worked with and very collaborative environment in many organizations.

    Cons

    Leadership changes so frequently that no new initiatives can ever take hold. Usually leadership does not take the time to understand the technology just makes sweeping changes. As a result, innovation has been all but eliminated. Outside of ATG, Uber has completely divested from all research and development. CV and ML have virtually no place at Uber anymore. Upper management is very political. If you do not know someone it is difficult for your project to succeed. Additionally, in my 5 years 19 out of 20 senior roles at L6 and above were brought in and not promoted. They have made it virtually impossible to get promoted out of the senior band at Uber preferring to only hire friends and coworkers from previous companies to fill those roles.
