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 Management

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

    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 Management

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


  2. Fast paced, tons of opportunity, plenty of chaos, high intensity.

    Pros

    Tons of career opportunity. People growth through positions quickly, you don't have to wait much for an opportunity to open up. There are all kinds of business pressures that will push you to grow as fast as you possibly can.

    Cons

    Terrible place for people who can't manager their own work-life balance. Zynga will respect your balance but won't manage it for you; if you can't either, you'd better be looking to work a lot.
