What people are saying about Uber
7 months ago
Hello, I am looking for any leads on remote roles such as: Sr talent coordinator, mobility coordinator, people operations coordinator, HR generalist assistant, executive assistant or anything related. I currently work for Uber & I love my job, but my commute is 1.5 hours each way (we are hybrid) and it's getting difficult with a young child in school. I can send my resume to anyone with any leads. Thanks all!

I currently work at Uber in their Accounting team as a manager, my previous work experience includes Audit at KPMG. I want to transition into Finance and although my bosses at Uber mentioned that they would help me transition into Finance after a year it’s not guaranteed as Finance falls under another Org. That said, I just got an offer as a Manager in KPMG FDD which would be a great way to transition into Finance, but I’d be taking a $15k pay cut. What are your thoughts and what would you do?

Am I crazy to think we’ve reached market share as best as we could? I’ve only been at Uber 3 months (~1.5 sales YOE) but I feel like I’m racing with my colleagues in the same territory. If we do get canned as a result, I’d like to begin going into venture capital/private equity but in client-facing roles. Would this transition be doable or do VCs/PEs seriously require you to be bankers

Great co-workers, solid pay, great product and future potential, Executive Leadership has great vision
Very very numbers focused and middle management lacking understanding how culture will shape and dictate numbers in the long run. all-hands meetings ran like they were investor meetings and never mentions about culture focus or empowering employees. Middle management has no clue that happy employees product better results and will inevitably lose good employees and decrease their quality of hires over time. Also, the layoffs were handled extremely poorly even though they tried to act like they were similar to AirBnB.3

Uber is changing cities for the better, and it's awesome to be a part of that.
Uber's growing fast, and it's grown big faster than just about anywhere else before, which means you need to be resilient. I'm optimistic about the chance to be part of a great and growing culture though.Uber Response7y
I appreciate the feedback and optimism! Keep up the great work, thanks for the review.

Great coworkers in an overall low pressure, laid back atmosphere. Being a part of a company that has become such a big part of current pop culture was an interesting and exciting experience -- high 'glitz and glam' factor in comparison to most jobs. It's not retail.
Communication was minimal from the top and continued to weaken as messages passed down from upper levels to lower levels of employee clearance. As a young organization whose goal has been to redefine a longstanding industry (which it has successfully done!) the company still has a lot to learn in terms of positive vs. negative "corporate attitude" and general organizational human resource management -- many policies and the enforcement behind them was very wish-washy within our market, and the lines became even more blurred when communicating with other city teams to seek advice or information. Little to no defined path for growth makes for one of two types of employee: apathetic reps with no real passion for the job but to pass time and make an easy dollar or disappointed employees who eagerly want to grow but feel aimless and under appreciated.14Uber Response8y
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. You've pointed to a few things that we're working hard on -- the flow of communications and career development on the operations side of the house. I see that you've moved onto another opportunity. I wanted to thank you anyway for providing such detailed feedback on your experience.

The leadership team has very strategic thinking on the business goals in the long run. The culture is open and free for you to propose your new ideas and debate what's best for the business
Long working hour and tons of works to do

They did a great job with culture fit when finding new employees and we managed to work together well. Great managers, was able to get great feedback from them which helped improve my skills as an expert. Also very great benefits and received a generous amount of PTO from the start.
Horrible communication with other teams. When there are new updates, we are not in the loop with the new updates and are caught off guard causing us to not give the best support. No room for growth. A great way to learn the basics of customer success in a tech company but, opportunities is very limited unless you are willing to relocate.

- Young and passionate team - Good start up culture and provide you with good explosion to a wide array of jobs
- The hierarchy is quite flat and leadership is lacking in the company
- 4.08 Oct 2022Merchant Operations LeadCurrent Employee, more than 5 yearsSydney
Work with smart, dedicated people. Work on interesting problems in an exciting industry - very flexible work environment with nice perks (Uber credits). Overall very positive and collaborative culture if you can handle the often ambiguous environment and the fast-changing priorities.
Do more with less is the mantra since the strong focus on profitability. Career opportunities in Australia are more limited for people looking to move into senior management positions, better if you're willing to move overseas.

I was surrounded by talented people and the team culture of my team was very supportive.
The company isn't very stable... I've witnessed many rounds of layoffs during my time at the company.

There are a lot of competitive people at Uber and the startup culture is also good.
They have something called OnCall. This means there is one person whose job is to address customer complaints in real time. This can mean, in India, you have to stay up till 3 am to resolve some bugs.

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
The hours are definitely long and expectations are high but this culture allows the small teams to achieve big things3Uber Response8y
Fantastic review, thank you!
