    A lot also depends on what org in Uber.

    It’s fine to make hay while the sun shines but no team in Uber will feel truly safe until the company demonstrates a path to sustainable profitability beyond the challenges posed by autonomous competitors such as Waymo, Lyft, Cruise, Tesla, DoorDash and Postmates. The advent of autonomous vehicles will either grow or destroy Uber.

      I have an offer from Uber in EU.... offer is awesome, my only concern is that I will find a very bad mood within the team/office. I don’t understand why they let people go, and now they hire new staff that has to be trained before becoming productive?

      I suspect the layoffs were retaliation against CA for AB5 and a show of fiscal responsibility for investors. The layoffs probably aren’t impacting morale as much as everyone’s equity compensation decreasing. Lots of people worked hard, thinking their equity was worth $45/share and are a bit less gung-ho after taking a large perceived pay cut. If the stock hits $10-20/share there will be riots

      Also Aarhus, DK seems to be a very interesting office. Is that solid too?

      Vilnius and Aarhus are mostly infra. Amsterdam is more about product.

      All offices are pretty good in terms of atmosphere. I'd decide which city you'd like to live in.

    If you don't have a better offer, I guess you can do it.

    It's a risky venture. Really depends on what your other options are...

    You might be getting hired just so that your manager can fill headcount so he/she doesn’t have to let go of critical personnel later... so a smart way to play it might be to get into the company and then transfer ASAP to a safer division (like freight)
