    I worked at Y Media Labs full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Talented designers who put in the effort - Free lunches on Mondays - Very relaxed vibe with easy to talk to peers

    Cons

    - Does not understand the strategy in their work, but rather trying to sell the next project - No real clear path to growth - A lot politics including leadership being very opinionated that their answer is the only answer - Focused on just creating mobile apps, and not seeing the big picture from a strategy perspective - Leadership thinks that overtime is expected and accuses people of sacrificing their work/life balance

    I have been working at Y Media Labs

    Pros

    THE Best Company to work for in the Silicon Valley! Great work-life balance, intelligent and friendly team, stunning new office space, fast paced environment, cutting edge technologies and equipment, high standards when it comes to our work and finished product; Just an all around winner!! I have been here for almost 2 years and could not be more proud to be part of the YML team. Also, User Experience is put first in our process, which I strongly commend. Every feature, every transition, every app is beyond polished and created with the user in the mind. Overall this is a fine establishment and I highly recommend to all prospective employees...engineers, designers, sales....everyone!

    Cons

    Fast paced nature can be a challenge for some, but everyone here is here to help and give you the tools to succeed.
