Good work environment -- too bad the product is not as good

I worked at MyLife

Pros

- Catered lunches
- Bagle/fruit provided free
- Relaxed dress code
- Flat organization
- Weekly all-hands meetings foster communication (though I'm not sure if they still have these)
- Great holiday parties and for special events (Jeff knows how to have a good time!)

Cons

- Benefits are mediocre (health ins. premium cost to employee is expensive if covering spouse/family) - it's a small company though, so this shouldn't surprise anyone -- negotiate for the highest salary you can to make up for this.
- HR function is barely present
- No match on 401K (again, given current economic climate, not a surprise)
- Company changes strategic direction quite frequently
- Product does not deliver what it promises, thus, is misleading to the consumer

    Pros

    compensation, some genuinely nice people, company doing well financially, most folks enjoy their jobs pretty well, work/life balance is good, as are hours; decent enough idea with positive contribution to society; company has succeeded where others haven't, departments cooperate well together, good technology, pretty clear idea of where the company is headed

    Cons

    priorities and tasks are constantly changing, lack of recognition for work accomplished, lack of equity for staff, lack of marketing, too many decisions made by consensus; benefits aren't so good (especially for insuring families, too expensive), inconvenient office location to commute to, not enough staff for the number of projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    develop the equity pool and share, recognize individual achievement, allow people to finish their tasks without more new unscheduled tasks being delivered to us

    I have been working at MyLife full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company is on the upswing and in the process of creating services that offer to true value. Lots of smart, hardworking people getting the job done. It's exciting to be part of a team creating something new.

    Cons

    Wouldn't mind if there was one less meeting each week ... but the chairs are comfortable.
