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

        Pros

        Culture transformation is real and the focus on inclusivity is legit - not a PR stunt or stance in reaction to the company's troubled past. The work is exceptionally challenging, but engaging in that its meaningful and fun.

        Cons

        There is no way to complete all assigned and proactive work during even expanded business hours (most roles here are 60 hours or so, just to keep up). I do not see this as a true con because it was expected, however I feel this is a need to know going in.

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

        Pros

        Uber is a work place that is putting in the effort to have strong cultural norms and take care of their employees. Breakfast and lunch are provided daily, great health and wellness benefits, education benefits and opportunity and monthly Uber credits. Ability to work from home; opportunity to travel.

        Cons

        No cons overall cons. The work is hard and challenging, but that is not necessarily a bad thing.

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

        Pros

        The benefits are amazing. The culture is strong. Intelligent and able people who care about the work they do. Leadership is fantastic. Opportunities are endless. Leadership cares about doing the right thing both by our partners and riders as well as the employees. FOOD. You will barely have to go grocery shopping.

        Cons

        As with all startups (C.O.E. is still very much a startup environment) change is constant and is not always well communicated. Not a lot of senior leadership if you end up working a night shift.

        Advice to Management

        Be more proactive about communicating change to the people it will be affecting the most.

        Pros

        This place has literally been mind blowing! Amazing place to work. Culture is great. Training is more than thorough, and you are always learning something new. Benefits are hands down the best I have had in many years. Lots of great perks and other benefits. So much that it is hard to remember is all. Trainers and leads are super helpful. If you fail at this job, basically you didn't want the job in the first place. Uber...

        Cons

        I really don't have any cons. I guess if I had to put something down, it's I hope for a shift in the future that is not inclusive of a Saturday or Sunday. This is a 24/7/365 job, so it is to be expected.

        Advice to Management

        Just keep listening and learning. We're all in this together.
