    I worked at Uber full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a fast-paced environment with little oversight on your day-to-day work

    Cons

    Uber is about as toxic as it can get in terms of places to work. There's a macho, fratty atmosphere and everyone is expected to do battle for everything. You compete against your own teammates and are forced to be an aggressive to survive and climb the ranks. Even doing things that are ethically wrong are encouraged, so long as it's good for the business/growth.

    Hi - thanks for taking the time to write up this review. While there’s no denying there have been challenges over the last few years, I’m confident we’re headed in the right direction when it comes to making Uber a better place to work for everyone. We’re working on major projects across the company -- from HR practices, manager training, leadership coaching, perks & benefits, our values, and so much more -- which in their sum will take Uber to the next level. I wanted to thank you for your time and contributions to Uber, and if you ever want to connect offline to discuss further, feel free to reach out - pierce@uber.com.

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

    Pros

    Very detailed recruiting and onboarding processes. A LOT of information at your disposal in terms of the company, career development, cultural norms, , any and all concerns you might have. Everybody is friendly and approachable. Encouraging environment, plenty of resources to grow and learn. Everybody is treated like a grown-up.

    Cons

    There's so much effort into company culture and development that it might feel like too much, if you're not used to it. It can be overwhelming. Also, you can see how the stereotypical startup culture clashes with attempts to be a best-practices place to work. (everybody is tired and overworked all of the time, and proud of it). It seems to be a a learning process for the company itself.

    I have been working at Uber full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn a lot. They say 2 years at Uber is equivalent to 5 years in another company, well its actually true. The company is super fast paced and is full of very many young people who are very energetic and enthusiastic to get the job done. Great flex time and they give you cool benefits such as payments for massages, fit bits, yoga, the gym and anything that you do towards relieving stress.

    Cons

    Because the company is fast paced and has so many super excited young people, sometimes it feels like you are on steroids everyday. The company also has lean teams so this means that one person does the work of about 3-5 people this can lead to burn out . One has to set their boundaries early enough and strike a work life balance. Wouldn't recommend to individuals who have large families and or have FOMO - they may find it hard to say no or draw boundaries with their work.
