It's official. Uber has gone from hip startup to boring big company.
Sounds like morale is pretty low among employees, not least because of shady practices that Uber just can't seem to quit.
Employees also said they were upset by some of the new business strategies employed by Uber to appeal to drivers in the wake of the IPO. One was a survey offered within the app that hinted the company was looking at offering a new service to give loans to drivers, which the employees saw as a cash squeeze.
"We have morals,” one former employee said, calling the survey on what was regarded as a potential payday advance program “painful.”
At some point you just start to realize that companies really do have a DNA, and it's very hard to change a culture.
