    Growth opportunities, dynamic work environment, perks and benefits are great, CEO is approachable and authentic, fast growing company

    Advice to Management

    Reward good behavior and require management training to all people leaders. Look at base salaries to ensure an edge on competition.

    Pros

    Really great community of people here at Uber. Everyone is very smart, thoughtful, and accepting here which is amazing. From day one your voice is heard, and your opinion is taken into consideration. The work life balance is amazing. Management here truly understands that there is a life outside work - And they encourage you to live it. The unlimited paid time off is actually used - No one ever gives you a hard time for...

    Cons

    For this role as a recruiter - It's a hard job. Just trying to help people to understand that this is a great place to work can be a challenge. Also, the technical bar expected for hiring of engineers is high.

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

    Pros

    One of the core pillars the Executive Leadership Team focuses on is Employee Retention. I've never experienced that before. They spend a lot of effort working on ways to keep employees, happy, engaged, and recognized.

    Cons

    Some groups are not part of the core Rideshare teams and are, as such, semi-isolated by communications and initiatives. But, to be fair, it's a huge, global company.

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

    Pros

    Good leadership turnaround from Dara. Love the company's general treatment of employees.

    Cons

    It's a low margin market and any new player with money can basically force all players to drop their margins and go all in with the price-war.

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

    Pros

    1) Great company culture - people want to do the right thing 2) Super smart people - haven't yet someone I wasn't impressed by 3) Lots of growth opportunities - the business is growing, so you will too! 4) Interesting problems to solve - no one else is doing this work (or very few are)

    Cons

    1) Compensation is WAY below market - you are here because you love working here, surely not for the money 2) Start-up hangover - people who have been here for a while have risen to the top; they might not have the right skills or experience 3) Need to figure out HR basics (goal setting, performance assessment, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Bring compensation up to par with market!

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

    Pros

    - Clear market leader in a space with huge upside, competitors will struggle to compete in the long-term - "The power of the platform" is real. Uber's brand and technology allow us to rapidly expand into new markets and onboard customers/vendors - Weekly all-hands meetings to announce major events, business updates, and a Q&A with top-voted questions answered by top execs. I appreciate the transparency. - The...

    Cons

    - This is a tough market. Will Uber continue to execute toward a path to profitability?

    Company doesn't match 401k, hope some day company will look into it.

    Advice to Management

    Management is taking great effort to transform company's pubic image. I find it great once in life time company. Just keep making it better and don't ruin it. It can truly transform the future of how people get around.

    Easy to get too busy and to stay at the office too long

    Advice to Management

    Match 401k. Betting on uber stock for retirement is kind of risky
