    I have been working at Uber full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have just celebrated my 4-year Uberversary at Uber and I continue to love the people I work with. I still find meaning and impact in the work I do. While there are challenges across the company, I feel that I have been fortunate to enjoy the better side of the company culture. They have taken care of me and I have learned exponentially more at this company than my previous 4 companies.

    Cons

    Mid-level leadership still too junior and poor management from the top in many organizations.
    Cash compensation is still below market, but slowly trending upward.

    Advice to Management

    Train new managers on management best practices. There have be "managers" brought in that lead to the mass exodus of my previous team - no one seemed to care.

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

    Pros

    I love being able to work around truly passionate people who are ready to change the world. The culture is great, free snacks and food is big plus. I had the opportunity to take ownership of projects within my first month

    Cons

    The hours are much longer than any other job I've worked in, but this is expected to change as we continue hiring more help

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I'm excited to see the company grow and mature and hope that we don't lose the strong culture we have now

    I have been working at Uber full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been at Uber for several years. The spring of ’17 was tough but since Dara joined as the CEO, Uber is destined to be great. I love the work I do and my colleagues are super sharp. Compensation and work life balance has gotten a lot better. I could not be more bought in to Uber.

    Cons

    Uber is becoming more and mote mature so roles are becoming more specialized.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a CFO of the same calibre as Dara!

    Pros

    The good part of working for uber or lyft is that you can work anytime anywhere. Part time or full time when you want. If you need some extra cash this is a quick way to generate some.

    Cons

    Don't really have any cons to share.

    Advice to Management

    More promotions to get some extra or bonus cash.

    I have been working at Uber full-time

    Pros

    Uber is standing up a world class team to help transportation in cities flow as easily as running water.

    Cons

    I've heard Uber's snacks are not as good as others in the Valley, but honestly if you're only concerned about snacks and not helping society, you've got your priorities flipped.

    Advice to Management

    Dara and the new executive team are doing a fantastic job helping the company mature. They're building a world-class organization and heading up initiatives internally that will lead to tangible benefits for riders, drivers, eater, couriers, and more.

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

    Pros

    I have worked at big tech companies before and i was not happy. Before joining Uber, i had my doubts considering all the bad news in the media. However, this place is not like how they describe at all. My experience so far is amazing. I love what i do and i am very motivated. Unlike other big tech giants, what you do here matters. And we are not trying to make people buy more things or spend more time online (which matters to me). The work is interesting, it's fast paced and i learn new things everyday. This is seriously an awesome place to work.

    Cons

    The food could be better and yes there are long work hours and 401k would be nice.

    Advice to Management

    We believe in you. Keep doing the right thing.
