Submission + - Zynga to employees: Give back our stock or you'll (cnet.com)

ardmhacha writes: Zynga seem to think they were a little generous handing out stock to early employees. Fearing a "Google Chef" situation they are leaning on some employees to hand back their unvested stock or face termination.

They are being much more combative and much more strategically managed.'"
