    I have been working at Playdom as a contractor for less than a 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

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

    Stop investing in stupid tech. Hire intelligent people to develop better tech.
