Free snacks, lunch, good healthcare plan.
The management style at Uber, particularly in the sales department, left much to be desired. I found some managers to be overly demanding and, at times, even bullying. This created a toxic work environment that made it difficult to thrive and collaborate effectively. It's disheartening when employees are not treated with the respect and equality they deserve. Another major challenge at Uber was the unrealistic sales targets. These targets seemed almost impossible to reach, and the pressure to achieve them was relentless. The high-stress environment that resulted from these unattainable goals had a significant impact on both job satisfaction and overall morale. There was a noticeable lack of support from management in terms of addressing these concerns. It felt as though the higher-ups were detached from the daily struggles faced by the sales team, making it difficult to find solutions to the ongoing issues.

Free breakfast, lunch, snacks and drinks in the office
Huge employee turn over, was let go due to 'head count' which wasn't true (my manager was left with 2 people in her team after this - that's not a team). They do not address problems with leads and will always blame whoever doesn't hit target even if on holiday. Extremely micromanaging had a breakdown 2 months in the job because of the stress, micromanaging and unrealistic work load. In the short time (less than 6 months) I was there over 7 people were fired.3

Flexibility and you don’t have a boss telling you what to do
You will have to drive at least 7/8 mins to get to the restaurant then you waste another 5 mins to find a secure parking and leaving and returning your vehicle (minimum). You get to the restaurant and you have to wait another 15 mins because most of the time the order is not ready and they keep telling you it’s coming but never comes and if they say 2 mins then be ready to wait at least 10. Finally you got the order, now heading to the customer that is less than a mile away and so it will take you let’s say 5/6 mins considering the traffic lights. Now the customer doesn’t have a lift so you have to go upstairs maybe to the 5th floor and at the end you will earn: £2.80 - oh and the government expects you to pay your taxes too. You don’t get any holiday pay no matter how long you wait. Also before they used to pay slightly more and there was a lot of demand, now they have too many couriers so most of the time you are just waiting for an order to come. Have you considered when it’s too hot outside so it’s dangerous being under the sun? When it’s too cold it’s too cold to be outside and if it rains then he breaks don’t work properly same and worse for when it’s snowing or when it’s windy and you get pushed away on the cars. It’s really terrible and underpaid.

There are no pros to working at this company.
Sales team are terrified of senior management. Newest manager is trying to create a conventional sales culture. She demands respect and motivates her team through worry and fear. This is the worst management I have ever seen. Belittling and bullying culture. Biggest turn over of staff I have ever seen. I went on holiday and 6 people were sacked. There is no trust between colleagues and managers. You are not treated as an equal. Huge power hierarchy. Management are pure nasty. They only care for power and money not for the well-being of their colleagues. They will do whatever it takes to earn as much money as possible. Management are the worst people I have ever had to misfortune to meet. I can guarantee you are better than this job. Nothing warrants the kind of treatment I experienced.4

flexible hours - all you need to do is open your app and press 'go' Anytime, any day. Good for sleepless night as you can go for a ride and earn some money
Pay is not that good, so I would not recommend it as a full time job. On quite days or when there are too many drivers, you will earn less then minimum wage
