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

    Pros

    I work amazing people who work hard to solve really difficult problems I learn loads every day, the pace is very fast! I'm empowered to take ownership of problems and solve them day to day as well as with longer projects. No problem at Uber is ever too big to be solved

    Cons

    The hours are definitely long and expectations are high but this culture allows the small teams to achieve big things

    Advice to Management

    Keep the high performance culture up but make sure employees don't get burnt out

    I have been working at Uber

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with incredible people from a wide range of backgrounds. Huge opportunities for learning.

    Cons

    Very long hours. Any one considering any position at Uber must be aware of the long hours which can sometime affect the work life balance. A large degree of this is compensated for through an outstanding company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on personal and professional development opportunities for employees at all levels.

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

    Pros

    i get to work with an insanely smart group of people on a very hard problem - changing transport in Sydney. Everybody is so motivated. City Teams at Uber are small so you get to be part of everything - In one day you could be working on marketing, analytics, meeting with drivers, a press release, interviewing new staff, meeting an MP, or literally painting a wall at the office.

    Cons

    The taxi industry is putting up a pretty big fight, so this grinds you down sometimes. Yes, we all work very hard but there's flexibility around how it is done: you can work from home or cafe or whatever and make your own hours if you need to be somewhere personal.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to share the good ideas between all the cities around the world. Be sympathetic to different circumstances in the local markets.

    Pros

    No matter what your experience you will be constantly challenged at Uber. You'll be part of a young, vibrant and passionate team working in a pure start-up culture If you have an idea that will help the company, your only limitation is your own drive. You'll be exposed to a breadth of experiences you never thought possible. Monday's are never a drag since you know that each and every day you'll be learning things....

    Cons

    High expectations of the team from everyone Solid working hours with weekends common

    Advice to Management

    The next few years will be challenging as we try and maintain and grow current staff and bring on more. Let's not forget the value of the current members and ensure they're there for the long run.

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

    Pros

    Uber is growing incredibly quickly and radically changing the way people move around cities. This is made possible by an awesome team. How many opportunities to you get to completely shake up an industry?! Dream job if you want to be surrounded by incredibly talented people and you thrive on ownership and autonomy. Every 3-6 months feels like a new role. Culture of innovation, best idea wins and helping each other...

    Cons

    Will be expected to work hard, but everyone is in control of their time - no face time culture. You will most likely go to bed and wake up thinking about Uber. Fast past is not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Never drop the talent bar - keep hiring the best.

    Pros

    The opportunity to succeed is yours. You are given amazing tools and the chance to make a real impact on a growing business. So it is really up to you. The culture and the people are beyond impressive. I am impressed each day. Astronauts, Olympians, Facebook, Twitter, Google, Goldman Sachs, you name it and there is someone at Uber who has been there and came here wanting more. The feedback mechanisms are comprehensive...
