Uber president quits over incompatible 'beliefs and approach'

Uber president quits over incompatible 'beliefs and approach'

Such events are not what Jones signed on for when he left his post as chief marketing officer at Target Corp. This prompted CEO Travis Kalanick to promise heads will roll if future cases are reported.

"The beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber", Jones said in a statement. It was thought that Mr. Jones was not happy that the company was hiring a new chief operating officer and that he was not among the candidates.

For starters, Uber's decision to seek a COO was spurred by an embarrassing video that showed Kalanick arguing with an Uber driver over fare reductions that the driver claimed had hurt his income.

Ubers Chief Executive, Travis Kalanick is now in a very critical position, striving hard to save companys long lost reputation. That peer of Kalanick's would potentially outrank the now outgoing president Jones, and it's possible that didn't sit well.

Uber president Jeff Jones is leaving the company after deciding that there have been too many controversies in too little time. Waymo filed for an injunction against Uber this month, and the legal battle is still ongoing. Public perception of Uber has deteriorated over the past few months because of controversies and boycotts stemming largely from Kalanick's behavior and actions.

Uber called that the decision completely out of a blue moon.

McClendon, by contrast to Jones, leaves the company on good terms. He planned to join the election next falls and wanted to participate in helping the government in managing the current fiscal crisis in Kansas.

The reaction was similar at a popular subreddit dedicated to Uber drivers.

Last month, engineering executive Amit Singhal was asked to resign due to a sexual harassment allegation at his previous job. A month later, a former employee wrote a blog post about sexual discrimination she faced as an engineer at the company, prompting a company-wide independent investigation. Therefore, McClendon's departure is problematic as it is strategically important for Uber to strengthen their geolocation and mapping services. According to Recode, Jones had voiced dissatisfaction with the company's strategies.

A separate source strongly contradicted that suggestion. It is said that Jones left the ride sharing company citing differences in the beliefs and approach towards leadership.
