      What proportion of your portfolio is it? Is this stock or options? I'd say add to the position if it's not more than 5-10% of portfolio and you set a stop loss around 1 month average volatility below the current price of the underlying. Not investment advice, just what I would consider doing.

        - A lot of my team members are fantastic & hard working people - If you have a good manager, you'll learn a lot - Zynga is a great first job for learning game development


        - Bad employees are kept longer than they deserve - Company politics are suffocating and hurt the teams - Benefits became crappy after T2 took over, and pay is not competitive

      3. Has anyone looked into GALA, or have any thoughts on investing in it? I started looking into it and it’s a gaming token for GALA Games which was launched by some real heavy hitters in the online gaming space such as Zynga / FarmVille. It seems to be pitched as if you were able to accumulate wealth in games games such as Runescape that you can carry from game to game

        I like it. I saw it at 0.17 and regret not buying it then. Bought in at about 0.40

      Marketing Manager

      Team interview advice? I’m on my fourth round of interviews. It’s been a weird process where the assignment I felt they were very harsh on so I feel like I’m a shaky option. I got to the last round where I meet the team. 3 interviews on zoom. It’s a global team so I’m meeting my counterparts and 1 level higher in Europe. Any questions you rec asking or points I should convey? Worried about having the same convos again since it’s back to back
