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 Management

Set expectations appropriately and hit them both with Wall Street as well as with employees.

    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.
