    I worked at Uber as a contractor

    Pros

    Really liked the group dynamic. Good snacks. One on one critique of your work. Personable.

    Cons

    Felt unstable and there were cliques. The leads were rewarded greatly for good work from the group, but the group were not so much compensated at the same level.

    I worked at Uber as a contractor

    Pros

    Make your own schedule and set your own hours, met some nice people while driving

    Cons

    The economics do not add up in a way that allows you to make money once gas and wear and tear are factored into money earned

    Advice to Management

    Pay drivers more and listen to insights from those driving. Improve navigation tool within the Uber driver app

    I worked at Uber as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work on your own time, earn extra income, meet some great and interesting people, learn the area more, having fun on the job!

    Cons

    Not enough demand in Atlanta, lack of incentives for drives to take to the road and accept riders, low fares for riders = low pay for drivers, gas prices will take a lot of what you earn if demand is not high, no benefits other that flexibility of work hours.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE INCENTIVIZE DRIVERS WITH MORE THAN WORK FLEXIBILITY

    I have been working at Uber as a contractor

    Pros

    Flexibility of hours. Decent pay during certain time slots.

    Cons

    The navigation app could use improvement in dense urban areas. The pay rates tend to fluctuate significantly day-to-day/hour-to-hour; sometimes it's not worthwhile to drive.

    Advice to Management

    Stop messing with the pay rates so much.

    I worked at Uber as a contractor

    Pros

    Work when you want, meet interesting people, learn your city fast.

    Cons

    Lots of miles, sometimes you make nothing, and a lot of waiting, even in prime times and areas.

    Advice to Management

    Can't really give advice to an app. Not too much support from the staff at Uber, do things yourself.

    I have been working at Uber as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and decent pay. Since Uber requires customers to use either a credit card or a debit card tied to an active bank account (as opposed to a pre-paid debit card), you stay clear of the riskiest customers that cannot be traced easily.

    Cons

    You put plenty of miles on your vehicle. I'd recommend having a vehicle extended warrantee on it, and perhaps an AAA membership to help mitigate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on with your continuous improvement of the driver's experience!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing
