Had a coworker tell me a few days ago that his buddy just quit Zynga because the environment was becoming hostile and the crunch time was unending.

So this article and the EA comparison seem to be right on.

zynga management should have realized it in the beginning and given out stocks proportional to the employee contribution to the company. i agree that the company should be dragged to court and forced to honor their original offer. the google chef is a new term on an old phenomenon for successful companies. when home depot went public they created a lot of millionares. among them were secretaries/front lobby receptionists and one very lucky caricature artist who designed homer.

It's also apparently the reason Facebook isn't going public - Zuckerberg was worried that employee stock options, once the company hit an IPO, would cause much of the company's staff to retire as soon as their shares vested.

Honestly, with this power struggle, Zynga has (whether they admit it or not) created a situation where their likely course of action would be to get bought out and then have the employee shares diluted in the buyout. The question is this, though - who has the scratch to swallow up Zynga apart from Google, Microsoft, or Apple?

Isn't this essentially saying "We offered to pay you too much when we hired you, so now we would like you to return the extra salary you got or else we'll fire you."

I hope more people get lawyers and the company goes under. It is dirty and they must be punished.

I hope not.. this would set a very dangerous precedent, including basically rogue legalizing ALL forms of extortion.
