      I bet working at Uber could be a reality TV show. Imagine how awesome that would be if it was filmed like "the office".

    Seems like this type of culture is rampant in Silicon Valley. Reminiscent of the Ellen Pao situation a couple years ago.

    At first I thought this was talking about drivers.  Obviously, there are significant more # of male drivers out there.

    I actually know a few x-employees.  When I ask them about the culture, they always seem to become quiet.  I always wondered why, because it sounded like such a cool thing.

    Holy cow, it's long.  Can someone summarizes this for me?  What happened?

    I saw this article earlier today and sadly it did not surprise me. The CEO does not give a very good example to his workers.
