"You will learn a lot and get to work on hairy problems. Be sure to advocate for yourself, find a male leader (assuming there are no women) that is willing to mentor you and advocate for you and you'll do fine. "

"There is a pervasive culture of sexism a lot of which stems for the Engineering department, but permeates to other departments. Executive leadership is not strong and does not address leaders who create a hostile work environment. The company rewards long hours and visibility in the office over results and which do not favor women."

"Its an intense environment. To be successful, you need to be bold, unafraid to voice your opinion, and keep your cool when others have a different opinion. Several of the leaders tend to be very into the details, so you have to work hard to maintain your ownership."

"Not a great place to work for a woman who is trying to start a family or a woman with kids. Pros: Very fast career trajectory Cons: Very rushed culture Changing requests, frequent asks Continually changing management and lot of turnover Micromanagement Untrained managers who do not know how to protect and help their reports Not much independence to do the job"

"There is a lot that has been attempted to solve systemic cultural issues but there are still pockets (part. in Engineering) that are still pretty bad. "

"Be ready to fit the mold that the men in power have created. There is no appetite for diversity of thought, and persistent belief that "sexism may exist... but not in *our* team.""

"The tech departments are heavily male and have given specific feedback to women trying to transfer internally that they were not a "culture fit". "

"While the PR doesn't look good, this is a great time to be at Uber. Women's voices are being heard in new ways, allies for women are speaking up for better work environments. There is a positive wave of energy that is fueling what women are doing and how women's leadership and voice are being leveraged to improve Uber as a business and place to work. "

"I've enjoyed working here so far. The atmosphere is definitely intense, it's a fast paced tech company. There is the typical gender split that leaves me mostly working with males in engineering, and females in marketing. As with most tech companies in the Silicon Valley, everyone is gender progressive, but subconscious bias prevails and you'll end up being more successful adopting typically make traits. "

"They have an amazing maternity leave policy 17 weeks + 20 days"
"Upper level management seems to be all men from what I can tell."
"If you decide to drive for this company, keep in mind that income taxes are not withheld AND you are not contributing to your social security account. Additionally, because drivers are "independent contractors," there is no overtime and absolutely no benefits whatsoever--forget maternity and any sort of family leave. I have been doing this while I'm in grad school, but it has NOT been worth it. Clearly, it is beneficial for the COMPANY and not the PEOPLE to "hire" people under "independent contractor" status rather than as employees. Two thumbs down."
"I would say it depends on where you live if you should drive alone."
"You choose your hours and have the option to cancel rides if you feel uncomfortable or like someone is disrespecting you or your car. I've been driving for Uber for over a year (over 2K rides) and have never had to cancel a ride, except for when i've arrived to the destination and the passenger is nowhere to be found, nor are they answering their phone. It's the easiest money I've ever made. You meet a bunch of people, have great conversation, and get paid for driving your own vehicle on your own time."
"Fratty culture with a lot of employees 2-3 years out of college. The vibe there is decidedly middle school - cliques, backbiting, sabotage - and managers who are incredible individual contributors, but don't have the experience or know how to reign in out of line underlings. No work life balance at the lower levels. Can be a good opportunity for a short time, but you must be ready to say goodbye to your family."
"With Uber, you get back what you put in."
