Pros

Free food
Smart people

I was working on one of the "ville" games and I thought it was going to be a lot more interesting given how many millions of users we had.

Cons

Zero passion about the games
Grueling hours - my manager made me cancel a family vacation once
Very narrow scope and responsibilities
Hug team size plummeting stock price - I was told by the recruiter that we should expect $100 stock price a year after IPO. There should be a law against this.

Advice to Management

Remove Mark as CEO and put someone in his place that actually cares about the products they make.
Smaller teams and more achievable deadlines.
