    I have been working at LOVEFiLM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Such a relaxed, fun company to work for. Its very much work hard, play harder and you are rewarded for the work you do. Couldnt be happier to work here!

    Cons

    Migration over to Amazon was difficult with some process changes, but we still have the heart of LOVEFiLM.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the morale up and make employees still feel part of the team.

    I have been working at LOVEFiLM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leadership open door and very approachable, fast and nimble, no office politics

    Cons

    Now owned by Amazon - which is great for growth however not a lot of fun, very process driven and much more corporate than expected.

    Advice to Management

    Just because we are part of Amazon don't forget to praise people - we seem to have lost that. We did a lot of things better than Amazon - don't always bow to them.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at LOVEFiLM as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you love movies, great perks, salary

    Cons

    They keep doing the same things over and over again and haven't really addressed the fact that there is so much competition and customers now have so much choice. Everything seems to be a last minute thought. Poor location. No support from senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Realise that you're no longer the only game in town. Take more chances.

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

    Pros

    This is the place for people who enjoy films, don't need to be an expert just enjoying film is enough.

    Cons

    Not based in an attractive part of London, but would say the office make up for it.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Working in a start up, the people are great and there was a sense of everyone pulling together.

    Cons

    Vision is lacking from the execs. Focused on new customers. Will launch products for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the guys that know the code, they understand more about the business and customer than the disjointed figures you receive.

    Pros

    The people, leadership team, fun environment, changes, great popular brand, passion to do the best. Flexible, Successful.

    Cons

    It won't suit everyone. Tight small teams with lots of new work, and constant changes. Can't relax and be complacent. Quite Intense. Have to like change and move with the business.
