    I have been working at Grooveshark full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Chill company, flat management structure, easy to collaborate, lots of brilliant people.

    Cons

    Intense work/life balance, very young and inexperienced management. Relied almost entirely on student intern labor.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced managers, have defined goals for product teams, and don't re-iterate on the flagship product forever. Release new products.

    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.
