Start up mentality with micro manager energy

Relationship Specialist (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

ProsGreat location right in the heart of downtown (financial district) San Francisco. Lots of fun people to work with, had good health benefits at the time.

ConsStarted out with a manager who was extremely laid back then had a micro manager. During the interview process the job seemed to be something it wasn't. No real 'training' as a new employee or ongoing, little room for growth or ability to advance...salary makes it REALLY hard to live in the city.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the important things - retaining employees that perform.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A mis-managed, sinking ship

Sales (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at MyNewPlace

ProsNice office, downtown, Financial District with a roof top terrace
Stocked kitchen
Decent base salary
Decent benefits, all paid
Great Consumer Marketing Team
Smart and effective VP of Marketing

ConsThey pride themselves in being 3rd best in their industry - what successful company would even consider saying "We're #3!!"???
Month to month agreements invite cancellations from unhappy customers
Sales Management style is not conducive to success
VP Sales is condescending, threatening and unsupportive
Extremely low morale, especially on sales team
Customer Support led by the incompetent best friend of the VP Sales - resulting in very high rate of attrition and customer dissatisfaction with product

Advice to Senior ManagementSenior Mangement team (CEO, Investors) should rigorously review Sales and Customer Support Management team. Month to month contracts are not conducive to company growth or success, EVER. Consider a new name and rebranding. MyNewWHAT???

Some small company perks, but employee morale is low.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at MyNewPlace

ProsCo-workers are all relatively young and fun. Co-workers are there to help others when needed. The place is growing and changing, so my experience might not be like yours.

ConsDepending on your department, it is hard to get recognition or really feel like you are working with a cohesive team. Some of the dissatisfaction within the work environment results in high turnover rate.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough MyNewPlace prides themselves on being a cohesive group there seems to be some disconnect between upper management and employees. Leadership does not seem to be able to communicate when employees go above and beyond or does a good job. I have rarely seen anyone be promoted, which is disappointing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fun and Innovative Company

I have been working at MyNewPlace

Pros- Smart team
-Innovative products and ideas
-Skilled and hard working management
- Employee perks with lunches & stocked kitchen
- Good growth opportunity

Cons-It's a bit of a start-up environment still
-Mediocre vacation policy, which can be frustrating

- Keep the team building and teamwork a priority
