  5. COVID-19

    "Very supportive environment, great culture"

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Lyft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lyft is remarkably non-corporate for a company of its size. I almost never had to put up with BS as a data scientist, I was always able to make my case and be heard clearly. Everyone was really collaborative, and when I had to go on medical leave, the amount of support I had from my team was astounding. Also, the management structure for DS roles (report to a manager on the Science team but be embedded on the particular engineering team) worked really well for me- having a manager who knew my methods, and a team that was working with me to apply them, is very sensible.

    Cons

    Obviously they're under a great amount of stress while COVID-19 is decimating their revenue, and I don't know whether anything has changed since April.
