Would you join Uber right now if:

1) you were not at a top tier tech company (let’s just call top tier fb, google, amazon, apple, Netflix, Airbnb, lyft, any other company you view as a top company)

2) offer was not a significant pay bump (<10% tc increase)

      Lyft offered me more than Uber and FB. E5. Just saying.

      Can confirm, Lyft pays top tier now.

      Lol Lyft is paying 2 yoe experience kids in Seattle 320k+ and chegg says it's not paying top money?

      Returning intern in bay makes 260k first year and 200k subsequently.

      Bagpack@, can you clarify your definition of top pay?

      Lyft pays 20% more than Google at the same level.

    Moviepass for cars is always a good idea

    I wouldn't switch job for less than 10% salary bump.

      Even from some tier 4 company to Google?

      Even then. Do you plan to switch again within a year? Only then I'd say it's fine to switch solely for the reputation of the company. Otherwise, what's the reputation of the company worth to you?

    10% is not enough buffer for Uber stock's downside. Not saying money is everything but you'll be pissed if your TC is less than your old job due to stock price.

    So I’d get more money and higher tier company? Why the hell not?

      I said not significantly more. <10% is hardly something that should move a needle at all.

      And the question is really is Uber still a high tier company given instability layoffs and financial reports

    I wouldn’t go anywhere for a 10% bump. Why should I take the risk?

    Curious what you’re thinking. I also got a job offer from Uber (non tech) and am curious. Although my TC increase would be more like 20%. I’m leaning towards accepting

    Uber is funky nowadays. I’d wait till these lay-off rumors materialize or die.
