    Pros

    The company is pursuing an exciting opportunity behind helping everyone look good to the world, and protect their privacy, reputation and identity online - an important need for every individual. Led by a team with many past successes, the company has a great office space and location as well.

    Cons

    If you're not smart, collaborative, great at what you do, bring passion to make a positive impact on the world, and want to contribute to our company's success every day, you shouldn't work as part of our team.

    The Core Values of MyLife are:

    - We Care About Our Customers Needs, and Work Hard to Deliver Valuable Services
    - We Believe Collaboration Gives Us the Best Chance for Success
    - We Take Risks to Find Impactful Solutions
    - We Value Time and Move Quickly
    - We are Relentless About Driving Toward Success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We all (management included) work hard to identify and pursue big strategic opportunities with the team, and management works hard to ensure clarity of direction and purpose, while keeping everyone informed about progress. We are also working hard to ensure that we only hire A-players as teammates that fit our cultural values.

    Pros

    Good people work there. Nice, talented, easy to get along with and fun. It's great to apart of something unprecedented!

    Cons

    I feel many of the staff are just going through the motions. Management could be more proactive is getting everyone more excited about what they are apart of. New product developments are taking longer then I'd like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The moral is low and the work environment is too relaxed. You have a lots to be excited about with the new product. I think you can work on projecting this with more enthusiasm and get everyone more excited. Be more receptive and proactive in getting ideas from your team.

    I worked at MyLife (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company continues to invest into existing product knowing that there is not a need for the product in the consumer market.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and no vision. The current product is not being used even if it's free. The morale is very low and good people are already moving on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't have a management team to run the company.

    Pros

    The location of the office is central in LA and the parties at the CEO's house legendary. It will be interesting to see if this company lasts in the age of Facebook.

    Cons

    Shareholders are nervous, the downturn too extreme now and not many people left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no management left.

    I have been working at MyLife

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, free lunch on Fridays and Wednesdays, startup vibe, nice office location in Westwood with many dining and shopping choices near by.

    Cons

    There were too many layoffs and job cuts. Some people let go after only being hired a few months before hand. The company feels desperate and is trying these "new" tactics to save itself. Financially, it seems to be suffering. If you are offered a job here, I would be leery of taking it due to financial security -- both yours and the company. Don't be fooled by the recent fake positive reviews. This is not a promising place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trying too many "creative" tactics is hurting the business. And these decisions are harming people's livelihoods.

    Pros

    Mostly nice people, beautiful office, once was a very fun place to work.

    Cons

    Far too many layoffs and resignations in the last year or more. The most recent round was especially painful and poorly thought out. A good majority of the company was aware of it weeks beforehand, as a result of several very unprofessional members of management, which raised the anxiety level exponentially in the days leading up to the layoffs. A few key contributors were let go almost at random, though many were already aware that their names were on that list. The CTO and CFO have also left. More resignations have followed and there are many more to come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider bringing on people who you trust enough to listen to and are capable of preventing you from risking your company on products which are lacking a sound revenue model.

    Pros

    The food, drinks and employees are helpful. CEO's parties are fun and memorable. Excellent connections were made over the years.

    Cons

    Most employees have been let go since the business is falling quickly. It has tried every business model but the brand is not well established. The culture is toxic at best. I would not recommend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new jobs, you were no where near as good as you thought you were. You talked the talk and could not walk the walk.

    Pros

    Free food 3 days a week, good down to earth smart people to work with. Highly collaborative environment. Great office space and views. Fun parties and the company does charitable contributions a few times a year. Company pays for parking - lots of shops around since company is in Westwood by UCLA. Monthly company meetings so people are in the know of what's happening in short and long term objectives.

    Cons

    Commute - but is LA so what can you expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like work from home flexibility periodically
