    Pros

    The company offers Great technology, Great benefits. It has good work culture and they offer free lunches. The campus is great building.

    Cons

    During the later time there is no clear vision or path. Product team could be improved. There were continuous changes and constant rush to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have a clear vision. Instead of changing things half way.

    Pros

    Great benefits through working for a Fox-owned property.

    Well...not much now.

    Pros

    -Fun to say "I worked at myspace". -bagel Mondays I found that the best part of working at myspace was when I reviewed forum posts.

    Cons

    There are some pictures that should never be uploaded (or taken). I've seen things that I can't forget and that upsets me. Blatant favoritism made this place a drag as well.

    Advice to Management

    Stop shipping jobs overseas.

    Pros

    They treat their employees well, decent salary, great benefits and a lot of room for growth within the company. The offices were nice, and clean and had good maintenance. Good IT department, and up to date equipment.

    Cons

    It's a platform/company that is constantly playing catch-up, and after multiple attempts to reinvent themselves, the outlook for the site to regain a positive reputation in the industry is highly unlikely.

    Pros

    fun environment, daily lunch stipend

    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 Management

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