    Lime recruiting sucks. They have the dumbest recruiters I’ve seen in the Bay Area. Also the majority of the engineers are Chinese if that’s a factor.

      Can you elaborate on the dumbness so we can improve?

      Broken promises, ghosting, favoritism, too many screens, etc.

      Ghosting is common. I won’t drop names because it will be mean but favoritism is a big part of this as well as bias against certain types of engineers...

      We are not biased against any sex race or other demographics. That’s for sure.

      We used to have only one recruiter for the longest time. Now we have a larger team. Hope the ghosting piece is getting better.

      I like Uber, I don’t mind returning to Uber if I get a pay bump.

    Question one: a lot of interesting challenges, impact is always broader in startups. But your question is vague, try to ask more specific ones. Question two: depending on how good you are. Also managing is not the only way to grow, some great engineers choose to stay IC.

      OP
      Thanks! Would like to work on customer facing system which scales. Is there a formal process to transition into management or as long as your manager supports? Also compensation wise, is it competitive compared to other startups?

      There are senior leaders that may mentor you into such positions. “As long as your manager supports “ is probably not the best strategy. Training and experience is necessary. But the senior leads are willing to help. Without some guidance you will see shit shows of inexperienced engineers becoming terrible managers which happens a lot in many startups.

      It’s competitive or even lucrative. But equity heavy.
