Uber team matching. Seeking advice

Recently had an interview event with Uber.
The recruiter gave me a list of teams post-interview and mentioned that my interview feedbacks were positive (Can I treat this as verbal offer? no numbers yet):

1. Marketplace
2. Finance Engineering
3. Big data
4. AI team
5. Grocery

I am wondering can someone give me advice on how to choose the team among this.
I don't want to have too many politics and hope the work-life balance is okay.

My personal preference is around big data/ AI technology

Thank you so much!

    big data org = good wlb, nice tech,
    marketplace = product focused, lot of half baked solutions, very political. good exposure to ML based system.
    finance = mostly same as marketplace but eng quality is low.
    AI team = good learning but you will not have feedback loop of product launches.
    grocery = new business, may feel chaotic and adhoc initially.

    fyi - am in marketplace.

      In the Uber Blind Channel, Marketplace Fares has the worst reputation. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

      According to two of the posts, there seems to be a lot of toxic team members, bad manager, loads of tech debt, poor tech, few interesting challenges, but lots of low level work. There are some other threads about very political people who used to be on the team and learned their toxic trade while there.

    Grocery would likely have the most career growth potential as it is the youngest team. AI does interesting work but is kind of removed from product. Marketplace is always interesting work too but more product focused
