Mission: Improving people's lives with the world's best transportation.
I have been working at Lyft full-time (Less than a year)
-People are incredibly smart and helpful
-They hire all-star management with proven track records. The learning is fantastic.
-Our initiatives make me proud - easy to brag about this company
-People walk their talk
-Benefits and events are great
-Culture is amazing
-Grateful for the variety of IT resources but it's confusing about where to go for what and everyone uses a different medium, so you have to figure out individual preferences. There's also a lack of training on how to use these IT resources.
-Because the company is moving so fast, there are a lot of processes and structures not in place, so things are messy.
-Commission plans are a long stretch - rely on your salary, not commission. They change every quarter.
-Communication and transparency is not that great, especially around change and restructure. There is a disconnect between offices and between departments.
Advice to Management
Give more advanced notice about changes, not just band aid ripping over and over. Have hold outs. Hire more Sales Ops. Be thoughtful about process and people needed to grow, not just growing and hoping to fill the gaps later.
The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (Boston, MA (US)) in June 2016.
Had an HR screening then an on site 1.5 hour interview with three different people. Someone currently serving in the role I was applying for, the manager I would report to and then the GM. The whole process was very quick and thorough. All of the interviewers were very nice and seemed more interested in getting to know me as a person.
Today we’re excited to announce we’ve hit 5,000 self-driving rides with Aptiv! “Lyft is the largest network currently deploying a commercial self-driving program to the public,” said Raj Kapoor, Lyft’s Chief Strategy Officer. Read more here: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQIkm
Starting today on Black Women’s Equal Pay Day and through the end of August, Lyft will donate 38 cents for every Lyft ride Rounded Up in support of Black Girls CODE to close the gap and help Black Girls CODE grow the number of women of color working in technology and give underprivileged girls a chance to become the masters of their technological worlds. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQmQv
