I have been working at MySpace

Pros

New management has taken over and is making a real run at turning this place around.
Morale is the best since I've been around.
The new vision for the site is amazing.
The music catalogue is bigger and better than Spotify and Pandora (and it's free too).
We get free cooked to order lunch everyday.
Fresh ideas that are actually put into action, instead of falling on deaf ears.
Competitive pay and great benefits.

Cons

Historical turnover and layoffs under NewsCorp have hurt morale in the past.
Past mis-management and inter-office politics have given those that work here a bad reputation (however, new management has shown differently).
Previous regime was dead set focused on Futura and now we are all paying for their poor judgement.

    I worked at MySpace

    Pros

    Lot of people know MySpace although it's going down. Whenever I mentioned I worked at MySpace, it'll start the topic with people easily and my friends always suggest to work for facebook instead? Overall, it's fun working experience and meets lot of people.

    Cons

    Frequent senior management change (5 CEOs) and five round of layoffs in 3 years all contribute to unstable employment and working environment. You need to be ready to be laid off or lose your coworkers and adapt to new vision all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you care about your employee more and have clear vision...
