Lyft vs Apple - Offer help

Jul 6, 2019 10 Comments

I Live in SF and got an offer from Lyft a few weeks ago, 160/200 (non engineer role). Unlimited vacation, short commute and free food are enticing. Work I’d be doing is slightly different from my bread and butter and would require some travel, but the job would give me experience for future bigger picture leadership roles.

Received counter from Apple, 190/200 with 10k sign on. Having worked at Apple for a while, WLB is very mellow . Commute is biggest down side. TC and Refresh is biggest upside.

What would you do? I’ve now worked with both groups so the people I’d be working with at both are not unknowns. Lyft culture may or may not be better but Apple seems more secure...

    Apple. Move closer or midway. Your kid might possibly never heard of Lyft, in 20 years.

      So, your advise is to choose a company which never made a profit, over company whose profit may dip ?

  • Apple. For Lyft/Uber honeymoon period is over, they need to show profits in an year otherwise their stock will be similar price of GE. Self driving cars are away 10 years and they don’t have the capital to run for long term

    • How about Uber?

    • This ride sharing industry is a doomed circle with burning money. That’s why uber is trying our best to compete in food delivery and freight business. Etc
