    I have been working at Uber full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    High impact, work at global scale in fast-moving environment. Overall very talented colleagues with inclusive, collegial culture – way more than expected and certainly very different from reputation acquired in 2017. Generally a fair amount of autonomy available even amidst highly-coordinated cross-functional efforts.

    Cons

    Uber is a large company that hasn't yet figured out some of its processes. There is a surprising amount of hierarchy and a little disorganization (this isn't more, however, than at other companies, regardless of maturity). In the last three months there has continued to be some churn at executive leadership team level and, with new hires, the future is a bit unknown
