    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in new management and CEO. This is an unbelievably poorly managed company that is being run into the ground. It's only a matter of time.

    Pros

    Food on Monday's, Wednesday's and Friday's.

    Cons

    Jeff Tinsley, the CEO, is the reason why MyLife will never succeed. He is a high stake gambler who throws the company's money away by developing half-baked ideas.

    One of the few IT workplaces I've felt real prejudice

    Pros

    none that I can think of

    Cons

    "Brogrammer" culture.... for sure. Fit in or forget it, skills come second. Very unprofessional interview... I had to hear nonsense about skateboarding, and was told it was important that I "fit the culture." I looked around and saw a bunch of US Born dudes in their 20s. I get the message. No wonder I see an opening for that same job every six months. In twelve years of IT, this is the ONLY time I've been made to feel that way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house... skills matter
