Consulting Exit Opportunities

How are things at Uber? I’m an SM 5 years out from making a PPMD. Is a director role going to be a good deal? Would they have as good of a maternity leave / culture if I want to have a kid next yr

I am not at Uber but am interviewing now and was very disappointed by what the recruiter told me to expect for comp (huge pay cut vs my manager salary and equity not enough to make up for it). Perhaps the role is just too junior that I applied for but it has a bunch of direct reports and feels pretty meaty. But from what I’ve googled the maternity leave seems solid (17 weeks I think).

Isn’t PM a technical role though? I’m not an engineer so only looking at non-technical roles.

Something to possibly consider is that they are exploring an IPO. So if you join, negotiate the hell out of your equity if they aren't willing to increase salary.

No question about pushing on equity, but I see their equity as pretty risky given they are already extremely highly valued and continuing to lose a ton of money, so there may be some down times ahead post IPO as investors lose patience.

Making 200k after ten years with the firm. Wondering what the pay would be at Uber and how stable it would be. I feel very stable and secure where I’m at.

Agree with BCG1 - with their valuation currently not sure if there is much upside with equity

There is. Issue is people still view tech companies with the same lens as normal companies. Netflix is called overvalued by traditional metrics, as is Uber but it won't go down. The tech companies own and control data which is the new currency. The value of Netflix is in it's beat in the world data science, they will keep adding customers and segmenting their customers for value and Wall Street will stay happy. Only Google, Netflix and probably FB have stronger data science programs than Uber and Lyft.

Hi Ladies - I am an American woman dating a India-born Indian man. All has gone extremely well until he went back to India and shared with his parents. His mom was quite awful about it- called me awful things and told him he is going to hell if we ever get married 🥴SUPER dramatic -- and never even met me. Anyone have experience dating someone seriously from the Indian culture? He is an amazing guy and I do love him but his parents are VERY difficult. Should I run? 🤣
