Uber’s rise into the Silicon Valley stratosphere has been swift, but the consensus is that as the operation expands, the way the company does business needs to change. Because during that ascent, and especially this year, evidence has mounted of a toxic company culture hostile toward women.

It was only after public outcry and the resulting pressure from some major investors that CEO Travis Kalanick resigned back in June. For months, speculation ran high over who would replace him and, more importantly, whether that person could improve Uber’s internal woes and sustain its fast-paced growth.

That person is finally here.

    The damage is permanent, no miracle fix. The executives at this company are amd have been under the influence :) of ulimited funding. Earning 1.00 for every 1.50 spent is simply TOXIC with the criminal charges in europe and the continued flawed business plan, there is no turn to profitability. The latest toxic action is in india were guber is providing free insurance to their drivers ?^/!#$ that in business is an anti trust lawsuit. Fair business play is something guber never understdood. First task for new ceo is to go to texas and pay for their customer sarah milburn 24 year old female paralized from guber driver running a red light. Guber says they are not responsible for her medical bills since they are just a tech app ready to burst.
