    Pros

    Excellent employment opportunity; worked on and designed Grooveshark's new web player and downloadable app. Very hands-on for an intern. Well compensated for my efforts and many learning opportunities.

    Cons

    A little stressful when it comes to releases, but that comes with the job. Air of snobbishness in the employees, especially when it comes to lower level employees/interns. Complicated frameworks, needs lot of maintenance.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Grooveshark.

    Interview

    Had a couple informal interviews, mostly discussed where the industry was heading and what Grooveshark might do about it. The interviews were done in the laid back yet productive style that the rest of the business is. I would recommend going in with some opinions about the music industry, especially streaming. I would research Spotify, Pandora, and other competitors so that you have an educated perspective on the position Grooveshark is in.
