    I worked at MyCityWay full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great learning experience and room to advance quickly, Paid for equipment such as IPad and other tools. Very independent fun work environment where you will meet superior impressive business owners.

    Cons

    Very independent position where you will work long hours and use spend lots of money on gas. You will spend your days and hours off work usually working in order to ensure your success.

    Advice to Management

    Know your strengths and be humble the men who created the company are beyond intelligent but lack presence within Miami area.

    I worked at MyCityWay as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible schedule
    - Friendly colleagues
    - Good working place

    Cons

    - Things are changing too fast here in this small startup company. People keep coming and going. You need to spend more time on getting familiar with everyone's work style due to this.
    - Compensation for interns is quite low compared with the high living expense here.

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

    Pros

    Market or better pay, good benefits, and open feeling office space. More than most company fun events. You usually feel very engaged with peers, the management and clients. Generally you will be thanked for good work and told you are doing well. Whenever you have to work late evenings, you get to order out free food.

    Cons

    You have to work hard there, sometimes long days and weekends - which could be rewarding both monetarily and for work experience.

    Work often assigned on whims, with no project planning

    Advice to Management

    Decide what you want to do with the company and stick to it
    Communicate better with employees
    Increase the transparency with business decisions
    Don't deceive employees / provide false information - there is no upside to this.

    Pros

    Office space, work atmosphere...Everyone feeds off of each other creatively...innovation is encouraged...there is never a "bad" idea since they usually turn into great ones.

    You walk into the West Village office in Manhattan and KNOW you are at a place that thrives on creativity.

    The people I work with everyday are fantastic and literally the most talented people I've ever worked with. There is always a consistent drive for success shared at all levels.

    The clients that MyCityWay works with are all A-class brands and this lends to some of the fun of working with well-known established brands.

    Cons

    You aren't able to sit on the sidelines and not contribute (sarcasm)

Being research lab , people closely works together so no matter that you are a web developer/ app developer/ QA/ BA , you will know everything : Data Science , Performance, App development , Web development , Business problems etc. At least how these collectively is being apply within a project, you will know.

    5. Team is awesome , colleagues are either from top colleges or top product companies.

    Pros

    Claim to do good geoloc based work. Reached out with some good interesting ideas to develop latest technology work.

    Cons

    Higher management are people not honoring their words or contracts. This is surprising especially coming from a company based in NYC and getting the government funding there.

    Advice to Management

    Great companies are built on great management and great team handing workforce with a sensitivity.
