    I honestly love it here. There are so many exciting problems to work. The WLB is much better now!

      Appreciate it Pao! Looking to make the move soon. Not saying that I mind working hard, but hearing about a good WLB is key.

      I would say average amount of hours people work is drastically lower than before. 40-50 per week on average

      What is the effect on productivity?

    Good culture. The old problems I think have been ironed out real fast. Benefits are okay but remember it’s a non-profitable startup. Compensation should be decent.

    Interesting problems to solve. Great energy and enthusiasm. Great talent. I feel it’s the best company I have worked at even though I have worked at half a dozen top SIlicon valley companies.

      Great! How easy is it to transfer from team to team and job family?

      Actually internal transfers is something that was addressed last year when we did a lot of internal improvements, and I've heard it's pretty great now but haven't actually done it myself so can't speak to it too much

      Most teams just let you WFH if you send WFH email

    Find some people in your network that have left Uber and some that have joined. Don’t trust anonymous posters on the Internet with your career decisions.

    There are a bunch of Uber shill accounts (I know at least one recruiter) on here. Three people above responded identically “it’s all good”.

    If things sound to good to be true ...
