I have been working at Playdom as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Playdom was acquired by Disney Interactive Media in 2010 and even if it sits under a giant's umbrella, I love the fact that it continues to have a start-up environment and a fast pace.
It is a flat organization where the distance from thinking to doing is very short.
Management is available and friendly.
The free breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks add to the fun of being here.
Very professional environment and friendly.

Cons

No Cons so far. Need more time with the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicaton with the employees can be definitely improved!

    This company has invested in some of the worst technology that I have ever seen.

    Pros

    Smart people and a fun and fast paced environment. We actually implement agile development practices and our projects move fast.

    Cons

    Their compensation for senior employees seems a bit low. I've seen a lot of the people who have been here for years go to other companies recently; especially since the Disney acquisition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at increasing base pay and benefits packages for your existing senior software developers and development leads.
