Big questions for Uber's new CEO
Uber's new CEO Dara Khosrowshahi will be at an all-hands in San Francisco today taking employee questions, and it might behoove someone to ask if he has read the entire Holder Report. Two sources close to the situation say that he was not given access to the full document prior to accepting the position, instead only receiving summary information in a confidential data room. Uber declined to comment on what information Khosrowshahi did or didn't have.
Why it matters: Khosrowshahi's biggest challenge is rehabbing Uber's corporate culture, a "take-no-prisoners" swagger that contributed to allegations of sexual harassment, gender discrimination, trade secret theft, lax safety standards and rider privacy violations. But it's hard to fix something if you don't know the specifics of how it's broken.
