    I have been working at LOVEFiLM

    Pros

    Working in a start up, the people are great and there was a sense of everyone pulling together.

    Cons

    Vision is lacking from the execs. Focused on new customers. Will launch products for no reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the guys that know the code, they understand more about the business and customer than the disjointed figures you receive.

    I worked at LOVEFiLM as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    If you love movies, great perks, salary

    Cons

    They keep doing the same things over and over again and haven't really addressed the fact that there is so much competition and customers now have so much choice. Everything seems to be a last minute thought. Poor location. No support from senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realise that you're no longer the only game in town. Take more chances.

    I worked at LOVEFiLM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is the place for people who enjoy films, don't need to be an expert just enjoying film is enough.

    Cons

    Not based in an attractive part of London, but would say the office make up for it.

    I worked at LOVEFiLM

    Pros

    The people, leadership team, fun environment, changes, great popular brand, passion to do the best. Flexible, Successful.

    Cons

    It won't suit everyone. Tight small teams with lots of new work, and constant changes. Can't relax and be complacent. Quite Intense. Have to like change and move with the business.
