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

    Pros

    MySpace is a surprisingly fun place to work. Working at scale, great work-life balance. But also watching a company crumble from the inside. Not always fun in that sense but fascinating to see it and how the response from mgmt is on the inside.

    Cons

    From a technical standpoint there's plenty to learn but the things being built are a wasted effort because people aren't really using it.


  2. "MySpace acquired my team in 2010"

    Pros

    I can't think of anything positive to say

    Cons

    It was pretty grim, especially at that time. Felt like a ghost ship
