Uber Salary - Take it or leave it? Help!

Nov 12 19 Comments

Hi All - Uber is offering me an associate manager of client success position for $110k annual base + $11k worth of RSU over 4 years equally.

i have been at a director level at small ireelevant startups making $140 - $150k annual base with $10k bonus.

Should i take this as its 2 steps back in titles and $30k lower? or do you all think it helps my career? (i have 12 years of experience now in customer success/implementation).

Thank you all so much for any insight you offer.

    Absolutely not 😳 stay put. Give it another 6-12 months and you could go UP 30k (or more) with a FAANG.
    Client success at Uber for a demotion AND pay cut? MAYBE in a few years but the work you do and the company you do it with has to be appropriately compensated with trolling & cancel culture on the rise. I wouldn’t be surprised if you double your income elsewhere. Companies are putting way more value on this work.
    12+ years? Yea, you’ve more than earned an increase for a move...I wonder the rationale on Uber’s side? Curious - are you in SF?

      Also 10k bonus at that base seems a little low. For next role, I would push for 15-20k bonus if you stay in that base range.

      Thanks so much for the detailed response bud. This is for the Chicago office.

      Yeah it was almost insulting when they told me the role and pay considering my experience. The only reason I got excited is because I don’t have a big company on my resume. But have had no problem making bigger base salaries with small companies and great cultures.

      Nice. Yea. In that case, be a little extra if you decide to decline. Ask for an address - send a written thank you or digital gift card(s) for a coffee with people that stood out to you during interview flow. Uber is on the rise and an incredible company, but as far as big company experience ? Way better out there ... at least WAY better comp.

      This is a solid start, and great networking. Maintain the relationships, but I agree. Insulting.

    Frankly, that's a leap backwards going to nearly any company, especially to Uber.

    Seems like they’re lowballing you, no reason to validate that tactic by accepting. Don’t accept unless it’s a raise, and consider telling the recruiter as such.

    Definitely Uber will helps your career and next move, open doors for biggies.
    You can accept the offer and keep interviewing, if you get better offer - you can always move out of UBER!
