    I have been working at Uber as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work for yourself and make your own schedule, if you can handle working late on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with a couple week days you can make 1000.00 plus easy.

    Cons

    You have to be on the ready when on line and committed for 9 hours to get full pay, no tips

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give more incentive to drivers such as paying for tire rotations and oil changes and with those exceptional drivers offer a car payment of that month of up to 300.00

    I have been working at Uber part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Set your own hours.
    Potential for great part time pay.
    Decent incentives including discounts on auto places and health insurance.
    Meet some good people and make some good connections and great stories.
    Mostly quick with responses to inquiries.

    Cons

    Have a chance to run into some less than pleasant riders.
    If they offer 'guarantees' they take 20% off as if it was a fare, company takes 20% off everything you earn, which can be deceptive to those who don't know what to look for.
    Take out taxes, gas, and maintenance on your own and pay becomes quite small, but the more you work the more 'worth it' it becomes.
    Responses to inquiries can feel very cut and paste or automated and less than helpful, depending on who you get in touch with.
    Application can be very glitchy at times, causing sometimes serious issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of bugs in the applications.
    Be more attentive to your drivers.
    Be more straightforward with the payscale. (Guarantees, fees, etc)
    Be more straightforward and forthcoming with information. (Heat map, Busy Hours, Rider feedback)

    I have been working at Uber

    Pros

    Transparency within the company, extremely smart employees, open atmosphere, friendly colleagues, raging happy hours

    Cons

    Growing so quickly, there aren't many processes in play - but this isn't necessarily a bad thing. We have to continue to adapt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scaling is hard, we're learning along the way, keep listening to employees!

    I have been working at Uber full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Big hairy problems to solve every single day.
    Incredibly smart and fun teams.
    The work has real meaning. We are changing how the world works.
    Stunning levels of transparency within the company.
    Rocketship.
    Company growth brings opportunities.

    Cons

    Not for the faint of heart.
    Work can become your life, which isn't really a con because the work is A-MAZING.
    Most Uber employees take a pay cut to work at this one-of-a-kind company. No regrets here.
    Press can be sensationalist about this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve our product offering faster than anyone thought possible and set the example for a culture of excellence, safety, and humility.
