    Pros

    Don't think because they say you have flexible vacation/ time off that you do, pay is not great, massive burn out. To many young, unexperienced & entitled managers.

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

    Pros

    Super welcoming, intelligent team in the UK office and regionally. Interesting projects, great opportunities to learn and develop and to work cross-functionally. Good work-life balance. Lots of chances to take on new responsibilities and roles.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity in senior leadership at national, regional and international levels; but something they're cognizant of and working hard to address. A lot of stirling individual contributors promoted early to managers leading to good product and project management, but weak people management and prof development.
