Uber

August - September 2019 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

Got to work whenever I wanted. Didn’t pay taxes (yet) because you’re your own boss. Met a lot of interesting people, especially people trying to “make it” in LA from all over the world.

What I wish was different

Wish I created a structured schedule. Working your own hours is great but it also gives the opportunity to make a lot of excuses. Maybe I don’t want to work today because I made enough last night or whatever the case may be.

Advice

This is not a long term gig. This is a month or two month job. The money is great but once tax season comes around your hourly wage looks a lot worse than you thought. Also your car will start to dwindle.

Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • San Francisco, CA

What I liked

I really enjoyed the autonomy with which I was able to work with. My manager usually just gave me a big-picture idea of my goal, and left me to achieve it however I thought was best.

What I wish was different

Although, I loved my team, It would have been cool to be able to work on/with different teams, to get a better sense of what each group did.

Advice

Prepare to work. Working at a big tech company isn't easy, and requires hard work, lots of effort, and the ability to take critique.
