    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Uber full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I started my job during Quarantine and it could now have gone any better. I was fully support day by day and had more than enough resources to get onboarded. This company truly shows their appreciation of their employees and I truly feel like a valued member of the Uber Community.

    Cons

    There are still some growing pains within UberFreight (which is understandable) - there are MANY departments under the UF arm and it can get very confusing.
