How is Lyft as an employer for a non-driver corporate finance position? I have heard great things about the benefits but not so great things about management. All these feedbacks seem to come from people who drive Lyft, and are not corporate level finance folks

  • Lyft is wonderful. I've been here for a long time, and generally speaking things are great. The benefits rock, the people are the nicest, and the environment is the best place I've ever worked.

    The two warnings I'd give you -
    Many people are long timers in finance - but specifically procurement has had a ton of turnover. The cfo is smart and driven and will get us profitable and public market ready. But he'll pinch every penny twice to do it.

    Comp cycles are hit and miss. The last year was a major miss. Previous ones were hits. We'll see what this year is. If you get the comp you want when you get hired, this should be less of a concern.

    As an employee I've never been anywhere that comes close.

      ^ this. I’ve been at 2 of the Big 4 before this (sr level). The challenges here are very manageable. Impact can be huge. Opportunistic time pre-IPO.
