    Former Intern - Anonymous Intern in New York, NY

    I worked at MyCityWay as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible schedule
    - Friendly colleagues
    - Good working place

    Cons

    - Things are changing too fast here in this small startup company. People keep coming and going. You need to spend more time on getting familiar with everyone's work style due to this.
    - Compensation for interns is quite low compared with the high living expense here.

    I have been working at MyCityWay full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Market or better pay, good benefits, and open feeling office space. More than most company fun events. You usually feel very engaged with peers, the management and clients. Generally you will be thanked for good work and told you are doing well. Whenever you have to work late evenings, you get to order out free food.

    Cons

    You have to work hard there, sometimes long days and weekends - which could be rewarding both monetarily and for work experience.

    I worked at MyCityWay

    Pros

    Great colleagues
    Nice office space with good views
    Company seamless account

    Cons

    Work often assigned on whims, with no project planning
    Questionable attitude to work/life balance
    Shifting milestones
    Low moral among employees
    High turnover
    No understanding of marketing goals/analytics/market-fit amongst employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what you want to do with the company and stick to it
    Communicate better with employees
    Increase the transparency with business decisions
    Don't deceive employees / provide false information - there is no upside to this.

    I have been working at MyCityWay full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Office space, work atmosphere...Everyone feeds off of each other creatively...innovation is encouraged...there is never a "bad" idea since they usually turn into great ones.

    You walk into the West Village office in Manhattan and KNOW you are at a place that thrives on creativity.

    The people I work with everyday are fantastic and literally the most talented people I've ever worked with. There is always a consistent drive for success shared at all levels.

    The clients that MyCityWay works with are all A-class brands and this lends to some of the fun of working with well-known established brands.

    Cons

    You aren't able to sit on the sidelines and not contribute (sarcasm)

    I worked at MyCityWay as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Claim to do good geoloc based work. Reached out with some good interesting ideas to develop latest technology work.

    Cons

    Higher management are people not honoring their words or contracts. This is surprising especially coming from a company based in NYC and getting the government funding there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great companies are built on great management and great team handing workforce with a sensitivity.
