    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Zynga full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Team members are intelligent and pro-active in fixing existing issues with the game, all devs (at least in my studio) is intrinsically driven to make the games better - Everyone's friendly and willing to help - Great benefits and food - Rapid learning and career advancement for those who are motivated (especially for new grads)

    Cons

    - Middle management doesn't communicate as well as they should - Priorities in features/scrum work can change too frequently

    Advice to Management

    Keep things transparent and stick to a consistent road map

    Product Counsel Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Zynga (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I received a cold call from the internal recruiter asking me a few questions a couple hours after I applied. She set me up for a phone interview the next day. At the end of the phone interview the current counsel said he was going to push me through to meet the rest of the team. 20 minutes later the recruiter called me to set up my in person interview which took place two days later. I met 7 people in my in person interview, and the head of the department came last to meet me even though he wasn't on the schedule. The next day I was called and received an offer.
