    I have been working at Lyft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lyft has a reputation as a "nice" company, and the people live up to it. People here believe strongly in the mission of the company and they're really smart, but the egos aren't out of control. The company moves quickly, so it's exciting to see your work have an impact. And the benefits are pretty good: free Lyft credits, catered lunch, amazing maternity/paternity leave, dogs at the office.

    Cons

    The compensation is a bit worse than you'd get elsewhere. (Wait, no 401k match?) So you're definitely sacrificing a bit for the privilege of working at Lyft. And the flip side of the fast pace is that objectives change a lot and cause thrash.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on setting those big, audacious goals, but be more methodical about planning to achieve them. Lyft isn't a scrappy little startup anymore. It's a $15B company now, and it needs to execute like one.

    Community Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (Boston, MA (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Had an HR screening then an on site 1.5 hour interview with three different people. Someone currently serving in the role I was applying for, the manager I would report to and then the GM. The whole process was very quick and thorough. All of the interviewers were very nice and seemed more interested in getting to know me as a person.
