    Pros

    Free lunches while it lasted, good working environment before the layoffs, flexible hours, once a big name in the tech industry is good padding on the resume. Lots of events, secret shows were fun, and a lot of connections made in the entertainment and tech industry.

    Cons

    I was part of the group that got laid off last year but even before that, the entire team was getting decimated every quarter. There was really only one person holding everything together especially in tech -- ronnie, if you see this, you'd really be better off somewhere else bro. People in my department working for years got laid off and only 2 people were left, which is bonkers because they sold us that they want to focus on content.

    There's no direction from upper management and were absent most of the time, probably golfing or on vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved in day to day and take leadership training. Most of you don't have vision and don't know how to be leaders.

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

    Pros

    Lots of little fun perks, like swag, an in-office restaurant, parties, etc.

    Cons

    Totally dysfunctional and disorganized. Meetings to get meetings to talk about the meeting and then meetings to discussing the meeting about the meeting ... you get the idea. Lots of ideas thrown around but no action. Seems like no one actually believes in anything anymore (which I suppose shouldn't be too surprising) -- which makes it hard to get people to take action. It's the most lax atmosphere ever, which some may consider a pro but to people looking to advance their careers, contribute to a growing company, and learn -- well, it just makes it feel pointless and a waste of time

    Advice to Management

    REBRAND. I think at this point, it's the only way to truly get people behind this site again!

    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.

    They wasted so much money on free food. They could have paid us better.

    VPs always changing. No solid direction.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage instead of micromanage. Thanks.

    Pros

    The work is fantastic. The technology used was really cutting edge however at the end of the day products would get stuck in the endless product/design/spec loop. trying to push out new featurs again sat deadline was common. however very few features actually saw the light of day.

    Cons

    No Bonuses and pay was less than at comparable Bay Area tech companies.
