    - Loads of experience in event planning, media relations, graphic design, product reviews, writing/blogging, marketing research, social media, communication plans and promotions.
    - Gas stipend
    - Free to be creative, ask questions and if there is something you want to do management is there to make sure you get experience doing just that

    - Many recent college graduates work at Livio and the management is young too.
    - My portfolio is bursting at the seems with work that i've done just this summer
    - A resume/portfolio workshop is held at the end of your internship to insure you are able to sell yourself correctly to a future employer.

    I worked at Livio Radio

    Pros

    Lots of visibility within the company (there are only 4 or 5 people there)
    Great computer hardware for each employee (if you like Mac)
    You don't have to fight for parking
    There's a subway restaurant across the street (get used to it, because you'll be eating 3 solid meals a day there)

    Cons

    Where to start? This is a business run by a very vocal, eccentric individual who will control every second of your life. First off, you will NOT have a personal life whatsoever. You are expected to spend every waking minute of your week at the office. If you deviate from this, your job will be in danger. Don't expect to see your kids, wife, friends or family unless it's via a text message saying you won't be able to make any event you have planned.

    Management will try and control every single aspect of your life- personal and professional. Be ready.

    You will be paid 40-50% below market value, and work from the moment you wake up, to the moment you sleep at night (if at all). You'll be expected to participate in 3am conference calls after having left the office at midnight and then be there bright and early.

    The office is an entirely Apple computer office. Management believes that windows computers are inferior, and shouldn't be allowed on the corporate network. So be prepared to learn an entirely new system (trust me you'll have training classes on how to use it OS X, another hour of your day that could be spent doing other things).

    Management is known to burn relationships with every single employee that walks through the doors. There is extreme turnover. Consider yourself lucky if you make it 6 months.

    As far as benefits, you'll get OK health insurance, they will pay for your cell phone (you'll need it, management will be calling you any time you're outside the office), dental, and no 401k options. Vacation time is given based on negotiation coming in, not that it will matter. Management states "vacation days are a vacation from the office, NOT a vacation from work. You will be expected to work from home the entire vacation day". Basically you will not have a day off in your entire stint at Myine.

    For product and company direction- it's all the ideas of one guy. If you disagree or it's not his idea, then it wont happen.

    Management is again, VERY eccentric. Do a quick google search of the company leaders and their blogs. Check out the job postings and how their written? You do not want to become involved in this dying company with that type of leadership. "Hip and laid back" are not how the company really is.

    Oh and as for the fooseball table in the office? Management will play wtih the employees throughout the day, wasting productivity time that results in zero personal time outside of work. Get your priorities straight so that employees can see their families.

    Finally- DONT DONT DONT DONT take the employee stock option. Consider it wasted money on your part. Management will do everything they can to keep you from ever seeing a dollar of that money. They have legal teams for just this reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Oust management. They have clearly lost touch with reality and what it feels like to be an employee. Keep treating your employees, contractors, suppliers, etc. in the same manner and you will eventually burn every bridge available.

    I have been working at Livio Radio

    Pros

    Livio Radio is a young, fun, entrepreneurial atmosphere. It has been exciting to be part of this start-up where there is room for growth and trying out new ideas.

    Cons

    This position is at a start-up, which means management demands you be able to move quickly, commit to working hard and producing awesome work. If that’s not for you, then please keep on searching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Livio Radio has an exciting future as they turn to car Internet radio with new products and accessories. Best of luck to all involved in the next phase of Livio Radio!
