    Former Employee - Administrative Project Manager in Beverly Hills, CA

    I worked at MySpace (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work until the company was sold! Employee Appreciation Week was always a huge success. The Call Center always took care of their employee's.

    Cons

    Nothing to report; everything was great until MySpace was sold.


  2. Great Experience

    Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer

    I worked at MySpace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, low stress, working at huge scale. Great location (downtown Seattle). I think there was a lot of potential for making a significant difference.

    Cons

    Working on a dying product that is trying to be turned around but there's enough debt (technical, design, or otherwise) that it's unlikely to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in engineering and great ux instead of milking the site for ad dollars.

    I worked at MySpace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong software development team; very interesting projects; cool environment; open minded people who shared knowledge and experience. Transparent management who had excellent communication with all employees. Very good product managers and middle level management.

    Bad management decisions at the very top level. Lack of any vision or strategy to make the company successful, which eventually led to massive layoffs and MySpace's decline.

    Stop rewriting the webiste every time management changes, find a way to capitalize the existing product with minor changes.
