    I worked at Playdom full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Forefront of social/mobile gaming. Free food. Nice office. Entrepreneurial environment and aggressive attitude & culture.

    Cons

    Kids running the company. No vision or strategy. Maybe better now that Disney has acquired & cleaned up. Too many cooks in the kitchen makes it difficult to produce anything of quality with a unified vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the current management.
