    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 a week. I interviewed at Uber.

    Interview

    Got a call less than a week after submitting my application. Recruiter commenced phone interview spontaneously. Asked about why I wanted to work there, my previous experience, and knowledge of the company. Nothing out of the ordinary. Was told that there would be another round of applications and a shortlist would be compiled and candidates would be informed either way. Never heard back.
