Don't lay off your best talent

Community Manager Lead (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsWhile it lasted, it was a great gig. The perks were nice and the people were fun to work with.

ConsTheir recent round of layoffs were "wrong place, wrong time" with no consideration made to skills, positions, seniority, value, etc. The company blindly cut teams right and left giving no consideration to who/what/when/why.

Company sent an entire team to Hawaii not one month prior to laying off 500+ employees.

If you are currently there or one of the new hires (Yes they are still hiring....explain that...) you need to get yourself on the Poker or FarmVille 2 teams as quickly as possible. It doesn't matter if you think another team has potential...Poker is the safest place to be. The company is crumbling one team at a time and those will be the last to go.

Advice to Senior ManagementLayoffs have to happen, we understand that. Don't screw over your most passionate, loyal, and skilled workers (unless you were actually doing us some kind of favor by letting us out early before the entire place shuts down)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
