I have been working at Zynga part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

it is local in San Francisco. Free meals 3x week. Typical new media feel, so hours and choice of clothing/hair colour are free.

Cons

The hours can be regular or out of control, depending what team you are on. Most of the exec staff (those that haven't jumped or been pushed) don't know what they are doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring ex-EA people that tried to run that company into the ground.

    I have been working at Zynga full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    *The perks really are amazing. Massages, amazing food, in house gym, you really feel taken care of at Zygna.

    Cons

    *As someone mentioned before, you really need to have your own work-life balance sorted out since its very easy to get caught up with work here, and things move very fast. Definitely not a suitable place for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire PMS with more diverse backgrounds, such as design and CS, not just number crunchers.
