    Pros

    Super challenging, all engrossing , intellectual environment with extremely high levels of ownership. You are working for a company that's truly transforming cities across the world and it's an opportunity to create true and direct impact in lives of people. The company has a very transparent and direct culture, and that further promotes the sense of ownership amongst employees at all levels.

    Cons

    This type of lifestyle is not for everyone. Your life and thought will revolve around Uber, and while some might love this entrepreneurial culture, it might not be the best thing for everyone.

    Pros

    Work only when you want to. No boss, no coworkers, no minimum requirement. Meet lots of interesting people. Cash tips sometimes.

    Cons

    Passengers have no respect for your vehicle. The best hours to work are after the bars get out, and dealing with drunk people isn't for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    There is no way to reach management, tech support, or customer support, except through email. I would suggest having a phone contact.
