Relationships with manager(s)

My manager is very supportive. A big part of it is that she's also a woman. She understood that it was frustrating that I wasn't getting compensated the way I wanted because she's been through similar things.

Diversity programs

I feel like the D&I orgs at Lyft are a lot more integrated. Their voices are taken into account when decisions are made. They recently hired a D&I manager, and she's been working on making things better.

Training and career development

We had a week of Lyft orientation, but it wasn't necessarily related to my role. Training and development is very independent. If you feel like there's a skill you need to develop, then you reach out to someone and they mentor you or you find resources through your manager. Very self-directed. They have Udemy courses that we can take and they used to have a stipend for education, but they took that away because of budget cuts.

Application and interview process

I took that to my manager and asked to be re-leveled. Apparently, there's a three-month window rule when you first start where you can only be re-leveled during that time, but that wasn't documented or mentioned during training or promo conversations before.

Application and interview process

The salary and level that they initially offered was lower than expected, but they told me that I'd be able to get promoted and earn a higher salary at promo (summer/winter). Now that I've been here longer, I've realized people don't usually get promoted until after they've been here for at least a year. I think they should've made it clear that you have to wait a year to get promoted. Now I'm kind of stuck with my current level/salary.
