I have been working at Zynga full-time (more than an year)

Pros

At Zynga you are next to really smart people doing everything at grand scale. Perks are awesome.

Cons

Big company, so not really a startup culture anymore.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the company vision trickle down further down the chain. Whatever you say at the company quarterlies gets completely lost and ignored 4+ levels down from Pincus.

    I have been working at Zynga full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free food
    Smart people

    I was working on one of the "ville" games and I thought it was going to be a lot more interesting given how many millions of users we had.

    Cons

    Zero passion about the games
    Grueling hours - my manager made me cancel a family vacation once
    Very narrow scope and responsibilities
    Hug team size plummeting stock price - I was told by the recruiter that we should expect $100 stock price a year after IPO. There should be a law against this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove Mark as CEO and put someone in his place that actually cares about the products they make.
    Smaller teams and more achievable deadlines.
