I worked at MySpace as an intern

Pros

The Beverly Hills office has a very nice working atmosphere, filled with a young, unique staff. Very welcoming to creative and expressive thought.

Cons

As an intern, I felt that many of the tasks and responsibilities i carried out were relatively useless. There were many days were I thought that my presence was completely unneeded.

Advice to Management

Use your interns to your advantage.

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

    Pros

    Fun/animated co-workers, many of whom become great friends.
    Pay ranges from so-so to slightly above-market.

    Located in sunny SoCal.

    Cons

    Company couldn't establish a clear vision.
    Management, while comprised of many smart people, was relatively inexperienced.
    Company tried to do too much at once, making most products subpar.
    FAR too much red tape to get very simple things done.

    Advice to Management

    Pick one focus, establish the vision, and stick with it.
    Communicate said vision every single day.
    Minimize red tape -- far too many cooks in the kitchen for very simple product/feature updates.
