Product Culture at Cruise?

Uber / Product Leaning In
Jul 22 8 Comments

Got reached out for a Senior Technical PM role and just wondering what the scope is like, product culture, etc I’m an ex engineer but been doing product for ~ 10 years. Is this an L5 equivalent role vs Uber, etc?

I’ve heard some bad stories around toxicity so just curious is this still true?

    The PMT team is actually a great group of people - down to earth, hard working. The company just doesn’t know what to do with them, given decisions are all Eng driven.

      That’s the case with almost any AI / DL intensive products I think.

      However the PMTs at Cruise aren’t directly working on AI / DL. They build infrastructure and internal tools to enable AV Engineers to be more productive.

    I wouldn’t recommend Cruise, esp for a PM role, tbh. Heard a lot of organizational dysfunction and bad inexperienced management on the team. The attrition rate is also quite high in the product organization from my understanding.

    Just to give an example of a PM’s day - they are shut inside a room with other PMs to analyze issues for days on end. Its more bad management and lack of maturity among leadership than toxic.
