    I worked at Lyft

    Pros

    Very competitive. Lyft hires the best of the best in the tech industry. They also pay top dollar. The products launching are fun and exciting to work on. Most teams are collaborative and want to partner for successful growth.

    Cons

    Extremely political. There is not enough scope and power to go around for all the top talent they hire so power becomes land grab situation. Impact driven culture which means politics is at an all time high and people will easily throw other team members under the bus.
