Best in Class Data Driven Product Management

Product Manager (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Zynga full-time for more than a year

Pros- Really impressed with the infrastructure and processes around data analysis
- Rigor around developing you via applied experience
- bright people all around
- great office/benefits

Cons- obviously some turmoil in the press, but somewhat overstated IMHO- company just needs to deliver, which I believe it will
- Certain tools needed to do the job well can be slow, impacting ability to move fast during certain hours
- Long hours, but worth it to teach you how to prioritize and to get add'l experience which would take twice as long anywhere else.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet expectations appropriately and hit them both with Wall Street as well as with employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
