    I worked at MyNewPlace full-time

    Pros

    Low expectations.

    The perfect 'rebound' job between positions or a great place to get your hands dirty right out of school.

    Cons

    - You will have a new manager every 4 months.
    - All major decisions are made in Texas(HQ)
    without substance.
    - Expect to get paid 30% below market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the team the tools to succeed.

    I worked at MyNewPlace full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Started 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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the important things - retaining employees that perform.

    Pros

    Nice 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

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    Senior 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???

    I worked at MyNewPlace

    Pros

    Co-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.

    Cons

    Depending 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 ManagementAdvice

    Although 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.
