    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.
