Lyft Level 5 work life balance

May 20, 2018

How's the work life balance at Lyft Level 5? Is it mostly 9-5, or 60 hour weeks or does it vary by team?

    Wlb is a joke across eng organization. I joined about 2 months ago and I already need to work at least 50-60 hours a week. Other folks are pretty much doing the same thing. Much worse than many of the tier 1 companies

      Don't want to say. Otherwise people can guess who I am in the org.

    It all depends how you manage it. Don't let your manager dump too much work on you.
    But Lyft is kind of hectic overall so don't expect that Cisco or Intel lifestyle here

      Any particular team? Hardware, mapping, perception?

    lyft is one of the most disorganized engineering companies I have ever been in. They rush from one project to the next.
