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

    Pros

    - People with a lot of knowledge of computer vision, although there is not much chance to get to know people because it is so busy (long work hours are standard in this industry).

    - Lots of resources to train models, although sometimes the systems are down and they change often.

    Cons

    - The biggest issue is that there is a lack of communication, documentation and teamwork.

    - There are a lot of "tribes" that don't cooperate with each other.

    - Partially due to the remote location from other Uber offices, it is hard to understand the big picture, work with other teams and use the tools available at Uber.

    - As mentioned, infrastructure is not very reliable which sometimes means datasets or models need to be created locally.

    - A lot of emphasis on publishing papers as compared to having good code quality.

    Advice to Management

    Onboarding can be very slow. It was really hard to learn what to contribute within the first few months!
