I worked at MySpace full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Currently? I can't see why you would risk a job at Myspace today.

Cons

It's a brand that lost it's way, and was sold for a song by News Corp. If Rupert and co don't think it's worth anything, be wary. It' now managed by folks whose previously ran an ad network. Does not seem like a solid place to work, unless you have no other options in LA.

Advice to Management

Close 'er up, was fun while it lasted.
