Good company for fast paced people that love new challenges and with a lot of talented individuals!
Very fast paced and intense - a bit down on work life balance.

Uber is an amazing growing company that challenges individuals to the best at their jobs. There is an open line of communication with the executive team. The people I work with on a daily basis are extremely smart and passionate about their job. The culture is to share knowledge, keep on learning, with a huge emphasis on team. The company offers great perks to the employees.
Uber is a growing company so it experiences growing pains as our teams continue to grow and user base grows. The salaries are competitive but not top tier.1

Great job to make some extra money by promoting Uber via social media and getting people to use your code!
Definitely not a full time or part time position unless you live in a really big city where you can market all the time to new people.

It's amazing to see the product you work on and market start becoming viral and actually changing lives and transportation patterns around you. Extremely smart people who are super motivated to make Uber the greatest company on Earth!
No work / life balance - 16 hour days are common Quality of managers is surprisingly bad over the past few months and as a result growth of team members has been severely impacted.9Uber Response9y
Thank you for the feedback, particularly around manager performance. As you may have noticed, the manager feedback survey program just launched. Stay tuned for more training and development opportunities that are aimed at addressing what you've mentioned above.

People are very talented plus get a chance to work for real life product and people
Promotions are through only if you are liked in the company

People who joined early are smart, and they work hard. The new breed, especially management who live off the success of the grunts who did all the work not so much
too much internal politics it used to be about smart people and smart ideas now its about who can play the game this is particularly relevant to oversight from Singapore - heads of functions have no idea how to actually do the jobs they have been given completely out of their depth and dont like being challenged4Uber Response7y
Thanks for the review and feedback. I'm confident that a lot of the changes going on internally are improving the experience of working here. If you want to connect offline and discuss your situation, feel free to reach out - email@example.com.

The role is fairly autonomous, I think this can also boil down to each manager in particular. Uber credits each month are also a great bonus to spend on food and taxis. It’s a young company and the people you get to work with are really great. Positive having Uber on your CV as it can help open other doors much easier. Overall not a terrible place to work, but also not the best either.
Uber is known for having a lower pay rate than the industry standard and do not budge on this. Many opportunities to go to a different company and gain a higher salary. Progression is difficult as Uber still have a start up mentality, therefore difficult to move into higher positions unless a team members leaves the company meaning there is an open position. Also difficult to move into a different department if you want to try something new.

Uber is an amazing company with a fast paced and exciting culture. Technologically, it is one of the most innovative places to work at. The people are great and the use of data within the company to inform decisions is incredible. There are plenty of career opportunities for growth and learning, this is the place to be if you like diving deep into data, asking big questions and challenging yourself everyday. The added perks of working for a tech company are a sweet bonus.
Progress can be a bit slow, promotions and raises can be political and strongly performance based with external factors that are out of your hand.

For such a large company, my contributions really seem to count. Management listens to most suggestions and takes them into consideration. I believe this is because all of the people around me are quite intelligent and very strong contributors.
UberEats recently restructured and there's been lots of moving around for everyone trying to find their place.

I'm making 80.00 to 50.00 a day
Not sure how anyone makes 250.00 a day with Ubereats. Other problem is the ratings. I've been really nice and help people with bags when I go to the airport. But have low ratings because of friendliness. Most people are on there during the trip1
