Some of the benefits - ie. healthcare, free lunches, summer parties, etc.
I’ve never been so let down by a company in my life. I was there years, and was repeatedly stabbed in the back, and refused promotions - for no reason. I literally had one hiring manager email me to say that the reason I wasn’t going forward for a promotion, is because she didn’t like the colour of the font I used in my application. (And yes, I have that in writing). I was lied to repeatedly about promotions - they only care about the handful of people who are besties with team leads and managers. To the point where they’ll cover up felony convictions and give people promotions as a bribe to keep them quiet. They use the tenured agents as pack mules and then reward them with nothing - no bonuses or salary increases for your length of time there, your just paid the same as someone walking in the door. They’re now restructuring the entire building and despite promises of no one being let go - they’re downsizing every team. Tenured agents are being pushed to lower level teams without reason - just because management don’t like them for whatever reason. I had one team lead confirm to me that one reason I was never considered for promotion was because the team manager had a personal vendetta against me, and had just decided she didn’t like me. To the point where she let a false allegation be lodged against me and I was taken for disciplinary - even though I had proof from other supervisors and management that it didn’t happen. But said manager flat out said she didn’t care, and listened to the false allegation anyway. Some of the teams deal with incredibly difficult and sensitive cases, and hardly any support is given to CSRs, let alone the sufficient training. And if there is a tenured CSR trained, they’ll force the case to someone else with a better job title and give the other person all the credit. I left on horrible terms - promised a promotion in the interview, only to be told I never stood a chance afterwards. Left crying in the meeting, and the manager didn’t care - just harped on about how brilliant the other candidates were. They don’t care about you. The building has gone from <100 to 500+ in less than 3 years - to them you’re just a number. It all seems great on paper until you walk in the door and realise the reality of what’s going on. It’s absolutely appalling.10

- Very transparent company. Weekly all-hands keep me informed of what all the other product teams are working on. TK (CEO) also does weekly Q&A and is very honest, so I always have a good sense of what direction the company is going, or I can find out - Extremely passionate people who love their craft and are experts in their own field. Very inspiring to be surrounded by these type of people - So many resources... makes it easier to do your job and be confident about your work! - BEST Pro: The things I work on actually go into production. It doesn't get lost in some file drawer of "things we'll do later." But the projects I am working on NOW will have a real effect on users in just a few weeks. I feel like I can really make change happen here, and influence the product.
- I have had a great experience working for Uber, but I believe it has largely to do with what team you are on. My manager and lead are very compassionate people who are invested in how I grow as a designer. Make sure your manager/lead are people you would like to work with and learn from during your interview. Makes all the difference! - I have a really long commute. Would like if there were better commuter benefits3Uber Response8y
Thanks so much for the review! The weekly all-hands/Q+A with Travis is a highlight for me as well and shows the value in transparency from leadership. Keep up the great work!

Good salary package Additional benefits
Transport facility is not available. Work from home can be taken only during emergency. Payroll Manager is not clear with what has to be communicated and command over the language is not good. Manager trust only 2 or 3 employees and wants all other team members to work as these 2 or 3 members say. If you are individual performer who wants to handle & process in your way, then it's the worst place. If you want someone to check and keep asking everything what you work on, then it is the place your are looking for. Manager rushes for all the activities, there is not defined timeline. Everything has to be actioned and replied in a day or within 1 or 2 hour. Basically manager doesn't know how to prioritize work.

My co-workers were awesome.
I had 5 different managers in the 2.5 yrs I was here. My last manager was the most toxic person I've ever encountered in my entire life. We were constantly encouraged to speak up against bully management and when I did, I was shown the door. This individual was not respectful of my mental health conditions and was downright insulting on a regular basis. I actually had started up a lawsuit against him and was told that my proof of his conduct wasn't admissible in court, which does not negate his guilt. After leaving I learned that he continued to bully his subordinates without consequence and was also rated the worst manager in IT just after he was promoted after being on the team for only 6 months. I was turned down for promotion multiple times due to the fact that I never had a manager who paid attention or cared about what I was doing. If my work didn't put this person on a stage, it wasn't important to him. He became buddies with the HR rep and that's when he made it all about me and said that I was the problem. I stood up against blatant disrespect and abuse and I was forced out. This culture hasn't changed, it's reality is just shoved under the rug.14

The benefits package is top tier! I also experienced great growth opportunities while with the company.
Being promoted can be challenging if you need personal development. Managers are not always helpful with personal development when it comes you trying to grow.

stress free environment great place to be
policy implementation sometimes does not happen. there are team managers who gives favor to agents and does not give proper expectation to agents. environment is fast paced however we should always make sure we provide proper expectations to avoid getting negative feedbackUber Response7y
Thanks for the review! I've passed your feedback on internally. Keep up the great work in the Philippines.

Best possible culture where even senior level managers engage with the ground team to stay updated on operations. Priority is always given to your bandwidth
Really cant think of any cons.
- 5.010 Jan 2022Senior RecruiterCurrent Employee, less than 1 yearHyderābād
The team is so supportive that you inadvertently tend to push yourself. You are always encouraged to try new ideas and great managers to learn and seek inputs from. It never feels like you are 'working'. Its more like you are having fun making impactful contributions.
Cant think of any as of now.

Tons of internal opportunities to learn and develop
Lots of the managers are very junior and don't know what they are doing ; salary lower than average

-High-tech, opportunity of working with the smarter people, self-challenge, high-pay
-Leadership: Despite central leadership is fabulous in Uber, but in the cities, nobody cares about employees via questioning GMs or Managers if business KPIs are good. Sometimes, managers are being assigned by some GMs without passing quality criteria, just because of personal relations and trust, whereas it might be chaostic for a team if you have a senior who is unable to lead or coach. -No gross is available if you're already a manager and your team has an existing Senior.Uber Response7y
Thanks for the review and feedback -- I've passed it on internally. Additionally, I advise you to have an open, honest conversation with your manager about your concerns with leadership. Thanks again for all your hard work at Uber.
