Pros

There were really some fantastic employees here who were brilliant at what they did. With millions of users and Fox as their parent company, the tools being built and the media deals being run created some incredible products that were completely ignored by the public because it was easier to dismiss the company at large because of neglected user profiles.

Cons

Way too many middle-management staff that provided input for no other reason than they didn't know what else to do. Lots of insider deals to work or not work with vendors for astronomical costs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Drop the name.

    Pros

    It took some convening for me to join the company, but I'm so glad I did back in 2009. The CTO at the time was a proactive leader and really kept in touch with the teams. We knew we had a difficult task of reinventing the site/brand but everyone was motivated to make it happen. Some of the brightest talent I've worked with in the industry.

    Cons

    The only real downside was that MySpace as a brand was already damaged and our changes eventually had little impact. The end result was the mass layoff. I see the site has launched in a new direction. I wish the MySpace team all the luck in the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try your best to fight through the many years of MySpace getting a bad rap/bad name. Your backend services and security is far better than Facebook.

    I felt very underemployed.

    Pros

    The Beverly Hills office has a very nice working atmosphere, filled with a young, unique staff. Very welcoming to creative and expressive thought.

    Cons

    As an intern, I felt that many of the tasks and responsibilities i carried out were relatively useless. There were many days were I thought that my presence was completely unneeded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your interns to your advantage.
