Quick Decision for Uber CEO

Dara Khosrowshahi on how he made the decision to join Uber as CEO:

“My dad’s advice was, ‘If a company that’s a verb offers you a job, say yes,’” he recalled.

Taking on one of the worst cleanup jobs in the history of American capitalism, at one of the most loathed companies, Mr. Khosrowshahi was like a dad who had to mop up after the frat party, put all the Solo cups away and get the vomit off the marble floor.
