I have been working at MySpace

Pros

Work is actually very challenging. Managers are good and coworkers are reasonably competent

Cons

Company is on the way down and you can feel the desperation in the executives. Work is piled up in a desperate move to stop the decline. The worst part is none of the work you do will ever be appreciated by the outside world.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire better Product managers that have real web industry experience instead of former baristas, wannabe musicians and journalists.

    Talent aside, this place (in its current state) needs to focus and stick to it

    I worked at MySpace

    Pros

    Despite the product over the past year or two, there are some really talented people who worked or still work for MySpace. If you can find them, make friends with them and you may learn a thing or two.

    Cons

    There was a time where you could see the passion for the product in all levels of the company. Today, that sense of unity, pride and passion is absent with a large majority of the staff and that attitude is reflected back into the product. While I said one of the pros for working there was that there are really talented people who work at MySpace, but with that comes the fact that there are also a lot of 'cooks in the kitchen' and projects once thought to be a 'game changer' are de-scoped weeks before its release.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what your internal processes and structure needs to be and stick with it. Changing every six months leave people disillusioned, frustrated and complacent. Also, empower team people in all departments and let your teams do their job. Stabilize this and the passion may return, and perhaps so will the users.
