    I worked at MySpace as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone was very eager to get new products and content to be published out as quick as possible, and experiment with new opportunities.

    Cons

    Too little, too late. SNL called Myspace an "abandoned amusement park." The partnered companies and advertisers made it difficult to implement a lot of action.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the name, as the "Myspace" brand was already poisoned before the relaunch. Spread out the products, instead of consolidating everything under the one umbrella.


  3. "Administrative Project Manager"

    Pros

    Great place to work until the company was sold! Employee Appreciation Week was always a huge success. The Call Center always took care of their employee's.

    Cons

    Nothing to report; everything was great until MySpace was sold.

    Pros

    Still a good environment to work
    Lots of opportunities for growth
    Lots of focus to grow the company
    Myspace won't be what it was, for better or for worse, but new direction is good

    Cons

    Management was not the best, but getting better
    Would like to be updated more on specific direction
    Pay can be better but satisfied overall

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible.

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

    Pros

    The company offers Great technology, Great benefits. It has good work culture and they offer free lunches. The campus is great building.

    Cons

    During the later time there is no clear vision or path. Product team could be improved. There were continuous changes and constant rush to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have a clear vision. Instead of changing things half way.

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

    Pros

    Strong software development team; very interesting projects; cool environment; open minded people who shared knowledge and experience. Transparent management who had excellent communication with all employees. Very good product managers and middle level management.

    Cons

    Bad management decisions at the very top level. Lack of any vision or strategy to make the company successful, which eventually led to massive layoffs and MySpace's decline.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewriting the webiste every time management changes, find a way to capitalize the existing product with minor changes.

    Pros

    The environment is very laidback. The people in general are very nice and as an Intern I was allowed to sit in a lot of meetings. Interns also have an opportunity for real work experience rather than making copies, answering phones etc. There is a cafe now on the third floor which makes getting lunch convenient. The patio on the 3rd floor has an amazing view of Los Angeles.

    Cons

    Interns are unpaid and there are cliques in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more innovative.
