Disapproves of CEO

I worked at MySpace full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

its a check, free food

Cons

no vision, cost cutting at every corner. Management does not care about employees, and only watch out for themselves. Will publicly embarrass teams in front of the entire company. No budget to be competitive. Unless you are desperate for a paycheck avoid at all costs this is a sinking ship

    Pros

    New management has taken over and is making a real run at turning this place around.
    Morale is the best since I've been around.
    The new vision for the site is amazing.
    The music catalogue is bigger and better than Spotify and Pandora (and it's free too).
    We get free cooked to order lunch everyday.
    Fresh ideas that are actually put into action, instead of falling on deaf ears.
    Competitive pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    Historical turnover and layoffs under NewsCorp have hurt morale in the past.
    Past mis-management and inter-office politics have given those that work here a bad reputation (however, new management has shown differently).
    Previous regime was dead set focused on Futura and now we are all paying for their poor judgement.

    Advice to Management

    You've shown a great sense of leadership and direction in the short time you have been here. Please stay the course and never forget that the user experience is the most important aspect to regaining our prominence!
