    I worked at Zynga

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits (food, gym, etc). Lots of responsibility but lots of freedom on the work itself.
    Heard lots of hate/horror stories about this place, but that depends dramatically on the team you're on. If possible, work on a new IP!

    Cons

    Some of the high level design decisions may seem a little myopic.
    May not be working on exactly the games you'd like to play yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the core elements of successful games - you're not gonna make a hit by just being feature complete with the competitors.

    Positive Outlook
