    I have been working at Lyft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -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

    Cons

    -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.

    Community Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lyft (Boston, MA (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    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.
