    I have been working at LOVEFiLM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Leadership open door and very approachable, fast and nimble, no office politics

    Cons

    Now owned by Amazon - which is great for growth however not a lot of fun, very process driven and much more corporate than expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because we are part of Amazon don't forget to praise people - we seem to have lost that. We did a lot of things better than Amazon - don't always bow to them.

    I have been working at LOVEFiLM

    Pros

    Working in a start up, the people are great and there was a sense of everyone pulling together.

    Cons

    Vision is lacking from the execs. Focused on new customers. Will launch products for no reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the guys that know the code, they understand more about the business and customer than the disjointed figures you receive.

    Doesn't Recommend
