dumbobruni: i find it hilarious that options are mentioned as a major perk at Zynga, as Zynga has shown that it cannot be trusted in giving out stock options

"oh sorry, we changed the goalposts for stock options and applied it retroactively. give your options back or you're fired"


Zynga was started by a known con-artist (Mark Pincus, who stole money from his previous venture, Tribe.net, to found Zynga.) People who work there should have known what they were getting into when they signed up. I can't be too sympathetic to those who take a job without researching the company first.

Secondly, what Zynga said wasn't "sorry, we changed the goalposts." It was "Zynga is a meritocracy." In other words, Pincus is literally saying that he's taking stock back from his employees because he's smarter than them. Why stop at stealing when you can also insult your victims' intelligence at the same time?

StrikitRich: My uncle worked for Xerox in El Segundo for 30+ years, so it's not like there isn't a tech presence in L.A.


I know a guy who left his wallet in El Segundo.
