Former Employee - Director in Beverly Hills, CA

I worked at MySpace full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Fun/animated co-workers, many of whom become great friends.
Pay ranges from so-so to slightly above-market.
Free lunch on-site.
Located in sunny SoCal.

Cons

Company couldn't establish a clear vision.
Management, while comprised of many smart people, was relatively inexperienced.
Company tried to do too much at once, making most products subpar.
FAR too much red tape to get very simple things done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pick one focus, establish the vision, and stick with it.
Communicate said vision every single day.
Minimize red tape -- far too many cooks in the kitchen for very simple product/feature updates.

    Pros

    Office location in Beverly Hills, that's it.

    Cons

    Their HR is not Myspace but Specific Media (parent company), which is embarrassingly unprofessional. They don't know the difference between job roles.
