Was looking at applying to Uber in Seattle, but some engineer friends from other FAANG companies warned that it's a dumpster fire and people are leaving.

Is this true? I want to make sure my next job isnt in a toxic culture.

    Do you know why attrition is high? With pending IPO I would think it’s opposite

      Uber equity is over valued. Why stay to benefit preferred when you hold common?

    Yes. I have good friends working in Uber Seattle and heard that attrition is high. Some newly formed teams offload work that engineers in Bay Area either pushed down in priority or are not excited to do.

  • It's awesome. Maybe your friends refer to Uber Seattle in 2017. Not the case anymore.

    Just searched Blind for Uber Seattle because of this thread and there are some interesting (although maybe outdated) threads on this. Some agree with your assessment and some don’t 🙃
