I worked at Live365 full-time (Less than a year)
Work/Life balance, collegiate company culture (in some depts), nice location, interesting combination of traditional radio and the web
Company was too dependent on royalty rates staying the same. Advertising revenue never offset enough of the costs of operations. Premium listening fees a little too high.
Advice to Management

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Live365 (Foster City, CA).
I sent my resume to an acquaintance of my undergraduate advisor, who then submitted my name as a referral. I was first contacted for a phone interview, which was fairly standard. I got an email several days after the interview asking me to come in to meet in person. I met with three different people from the team I was interviewing to join. Within a few days, they got back to me with an answer.
I did not attempt to negotiate
