    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Whether it’s getting people from A to B quickly, safely and affordably, or helping people earn a decent living driving or delivering food, or improving how companies and shipping partners move freight, or thinking about making transportation more accessible for people with disabilities, there is no shortage of transformative initiatives at Uber. Working with any of these teams solving problems at global scale can be an extraordinarily fulfilling experience.

    Cons

    As in any other very large company, people who put themselves ahead of their teams or customers, can hide in plain sight under a curtain of often innocuous performance reviews and poor OKR setting and accountability processes. Also, many who were lucky enough to have a seat at the rocketship when Uber was in hypergrowth, ended up in positions for which they are often underqualified.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to collaborate, decent snacks, free lunch & dinner, monthly cell phone stipend, gym reimbursement, unlimited PTO, liberal family leave coverage, monthly Uber credits

    Cons

    Beaurocracy; it can be difficult to get buy-in for projects even when they are desperately needed unless you can "sell" the benefits. Slow advancement/promotion and rigid feedback/performance process.
