    I worked at Playdom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great people to work with, very friendly, open culture
    - Good benefits and nice perks (catered lunch, dinner, etc. --dude-- disneyland pass)
    - Constant variety of work opportunity to grow

    Cons

    - Opportunity for growth really depends on your manager
    - Seeing the many abandoned or soon to be dropped projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business decisions were not the best... oversaturating the company portfolio with hidden object games and overexpanding the company and putting all your eggs in one basket is probably one of the reasons why you ended up laying off everyone

    Senior Mobile Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Playdom in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Telephone interviews with recruiter, then a team leader. Then I was failed by a Chinese senior software manager after I finished my interview with the second interviewer(I was scheduled to meet 9 interviewers). I was told by my recruiter coordinator that the manager thinks my culture does not fit. BTW, the interviews questions are easy. The way to quit my onsite interview with such a ridiculous reason makes me believe that even if I was admitted, I would not work happily in this team.

    Interview Questions
