    I have been working at Zynga full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of perks Hours are okay (depending on what team you're on/which manager you have) Happy Hours with free beer/wine/pizza every Friday No vacation/sick day policy, take as many days off as you need, up to 1-week per quarter. Salary is great/on par with industry standard or higher

    Cons

    Depending on which team you're on, there might be severely little creative freedom Artists tend to get the short end of the stick for bonuses/recognition HR is made up of cheerleaders that only care about each other and not employees Witnessing thousands upon thousands of dollars wasted on frivolous things around the company. Company is enormous; can make you feel more like a number than a human-being Managers were promoted rapidly without proper training Sometimes completely impossible to switch from one game team to another

    Advice to Management

    Currently, there are management-improvement meetings that you can go at your own will. Make it mandatory. Witnessing someone get screamed at in the middle of the office is highly unprofessional. Have HR members that don't roll their eyes at employees whenever they contact them for help.

    It will be great if they promoted everyone who is dedicated to the company.
