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

    Pros

    I could list the pros all day, but here is a select few:
    - awesome team: 95%+ of the people I work with at Uber are amazing and people, who I consider friends, not just colleagues
    - you can be yourself: want to wear shorts and thongs to work? this is the place for you! In my experience you can be your authentic self (whatever that may be!)
    - treated really well: despite what you might read in the press, Uber is not an evil company trying to take over the world. At all levels of the company I have found that everyone treats each other with respect and values their ideas and opinions. Sure there are a few bad apples, but the great people far outweigh them!

    Cons

    - it's a bloody lot of work: if you love to take things on cruise control this is not the place for you. It's definitely not a 9-5 type environment (and I hope it never becomes that!)
    - public scrutiny: you need to be thick skinned as not everyone will love Uber as much as you might. Whether it's an unhappy driver partner that you need to win back over, or a know it all relative at Christmas lunch, you will find yourself talking about Uber 24/7 (and often defending/explaining the company). It can be draining and you need to be ready for that.
    - crazy amount of change: personally, I love the pace of change, but it's definitely not for everyone. If you like routine and hate ambiguity and seemingly endless changes this is not the place for you. If you are happy to roll with the punches and make the most of every situation, then you will do just fine.

    Advice to Management

    The Uber I know is incredible and a lot of the early Sr Managers are to thank for that. Naturally the company has to mature and has a huge responsibility at the size it is now, however, I don't want Uber to turn into another big, boring corporate. Let's keep the founding spirit alive and push through the challenges, whilst also being better corporate citizens - to our customers (most importantly drivers) and the communities we operate in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Uber (Sydney) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The first stage is online application. Quite easy one. No CV or covering letter or transcript is needed. Just provide basic personal information in academic life and work experience.

    Then I was push to an analysis test. It examine the level you can master Excel. Some questions need short answers. The time is 2 hours. I didn't have enough time to do the all but got passed.

    Then I was invited to the video interview. Only two questions and each require you to answer in 60s. I prepared well and was confident about my answers. But I just got the rejection this morning.

    Maybe I am not suitable for Uber. And Uber is not suitable for me to contribute myself, either.
