Classic plump and dump startup

(Former Employee)

ProsLargest social games network in the world

Chance to become rich off stock (VP and C-staff only, not so much if you are an individual contributor)

Big new building, very nice

Free food ( however the quality had steadily gone down, but hey its free)

ConsZero processes for game design, engineering, creative, project management.

Being told by my manager that if i am not at home sleeping, then i am here working. That is how i was welcomed to the team.

Worst HR department i have ever witnessed. It was heartbreaking how much employees suffer due inability of this unprofessional group to do their job. HR one focus seems to be giving perks, bonuses and quarterly awards to themselves. When employees complained HR un-friended us in the lower pay grades, so as not to be to conspicuous.

Operations really is a danger to this companies future growth. inept and callous, obviously more concerned about IPO , being the face of Zynga's humanitarian efforts and quarterly videos than being a real leader.

All the ex Electronic Arts VPs. These are the very same people who ran EA into the ground 5 years ago. Now they have brought their same lack of initiatives to Zynga and it shows.

Advice to Senior Managementsurvey the whole company about the areas that need to be addressed( HR, Operations, etc), assign these issues to your exec. team and hold them accountable to make measurable improvements on a quarterly bases. if they fail get rid of them.

Survey studios individually and hold the GM accountable above and beyond DAU and Rev.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
