    I have been working at Uber full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing. The culture is strong. Intelligent and able people who care about the work they do. Leadership is fantastic. Opportunities are endless. Leadership cares about doing the right thing both by our partners and riders as well as the employees. FOOD. You will barely have to go grocery shopping.

    Cons

    As with all startups (C.O.E. is still very much a startup environment) change is constant and is not always well communicated. Not a lot of senior leadership if you end up working a night shift.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive about communicating change to the people it will be affecting the most.

    Pros

    In the Downtown Area Hourly pay Good Insurance Looks good on your resume Nice perks - like reimbursements, credits Outstanding benefits

    Cons

    Leads tendency to misinterpret or downplay certain situations due to bias Leads in this particular LOB have a conflict of interest as they have become friends with agents Lack of respect among agent/leads/team Discombobulated Leads that are there more so to entertain agents and have time pass by Agents in the Rider Trip Escalations LOB are abusive towards the policies set in place by Uber - sleep while working overtime,...

    Advice to Management

    Please note the cons giving here and take accountability for the agents that are currently representing the company. Agents that are content have been here solely for this reason. Not because they add value to the company. I do not need to speak to anyone 'offline' nor is there much more to dig 'deeper' in. It is all stated here. Please note, agents typically leave a negative work environment, team, lead or management,...

    I worked at Uber full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Actually I worked with UBER as a driver for more than two months. I have obtained good knowledge about the both costumers and drivers problems and complains. I would like to share this expert with UBER and help to improve this business and adding good value.

    Cons

    First challenge is that to analyze the huge amount of data collected about drivers & customers. Second is that to find the best solution to improve the business and satisfy both the drivers & the riders.

    Advice to Management

    Customer is always right. Customers will evaluate the quality of our service. Our service should exceed customer’s expectations to consider that we added value to our business.

    Current Employee - Independent Agent in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at Uber full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours, improves social skills as well as driving experience, work as often and as long as you want, meet tons of people- have been offered several job positions.

    Cons

    Does not offer insurance, income is not guaranteed, car wear and tear, no control of false "bad reviews" (some people will do this in order to get a 'free' ride)- affects total rating (which is a big deal from what I have gathered from riders)

    Advice to Management

    Health insurance! Improve security for drivers who are given false bad review so driver can have free ride (notify driver to get their side of story and add more tedious steps for freeloaders)

    I have been working at Uber full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I've worked for a number of great companies over the years: Google, the games industry, research labs. I can with confidence that Uber is the best place I've ever worked. The challenges are fascinating. We're not just building a website or driving ad clicks. We're attempting to fundamentally change the way people and things are transported around the globe. The impact is tangible. At a place like Google, it's...

    Cons

    On the con side of the tech debt problem I alluded to before, there are parts of the engineering process that are painful at times. We've been committing resources to fix it, but there's still a lot of room to improve. Different parts of the organization still feel oceans apart. Maps reminds me a lot of Google, other parts of the company feel like other organizations entirely. We still have a ways to go towards...

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the long term. Uber a platform is the future of the company. Growth at all costs was not the right approach. We need to focus on brining the best tech to the market, with the right investments in the right industries (Eats and Freight are two great bets). Once we have world class tech build by world class talent, the growth will naturally follow from there.

    I have been working at Uber part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible. No middle management to answer to. Good rate if you work fast and efficiently. Communicate well through emails to drivers and riders. Increasing business coming online. Local Greenlight Hub.

    Cons

    Awful support. Unable to deliver during bad weather. App sometimes has issues.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the quality of your worker support. Bad experiences every time. Regularly misunderstood and responses don't match questions or concerns.

    I worked at Uber part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    None or maybe you get to choose your hours (that your getting ripped off)

    Cons

    Shady company, does not care about drivers only about riders if that. Some people don't get it but sometimes you work for $ 9 to $ 10 an hour after you deduct expences fuel taxes and knees fees.

    Advice to Management

    Shut it down your already running a 2.5 billion loss every year.

    I worked at Uber full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The health/dental/vision benefits are good. Uber credits are a plus.

    Cons

    Too many overnight operational changes, Experts (on the frontlines) receive information on these changes too last minute with barely any explanation or instructions on how to deliver these changes. Upper management/operations unfortunately like to hide behind their computers and expect the underpaid Experts to take all the heat. Management does not care about employees, too cheap to spend on things that miiight make for...

    Advice to Management

    Get on the floor more often, listen to your employees, listen to your DRIVERS and cut the divide between Experts and Management/Operations.

    I have been working at Uber full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free food and no discrimination in the workplace.

    Cons

    Low compensation, Lots of salary disputes. In terms of the job itself, the company is making us their robots. We just follow this set of policies, and punish drivers/riders who are being reported without proper investigating it. This makes the riders get more refund every ride, because we just basically believe everything they say. And...

    Please try to hire more competitive people. And please do not make us your robots.
