    Pros

    fun environment, daily lunch stipend

    Cons

    the product has been consistently shodding over the course of at least 3 relaunches. multiple management changes and opinions made gaining any valuable traction nearly impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    clear out your top level "executives" and hire some people who have actual experience.

    Strong software development team; very interesting projects; cool environment; open minded people who shared knowledge and experience. Transparent management who had excellent communication with all employees. Very good product managers and middle level management.

    Cons

    Bad management decisions at the very top level. Lack of any vision or strategy to make the company successful, which eventually led to massive layoffs and MySpace's decline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop rewriting the webiste every time management changes, find a way to capitalize the existing product with minor changes.

    I worked at MySpace full-time

    Pros

    Free concert tickets, No one pays attention to you so hours are loose and you can kind of come and go as you please.

    Cons

    The relaunch failed. It used to be a cultural nightmare because on top of a bad reputation the internal politics were endless. Creative and marketing couldn't align till the head of marketing left..and now the creative team got let go, so basically there is 0 direction.

    There is nothing left at MySpace besides great content that no one sees because the brand is dead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let it go.
