Current Employee - Office Manager in Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Office Manager in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Zynga full-time (more than an year)

Pros

1. A really great team of guys to work with every single day. They make work fun!

2. The "Perks" - e.g. daily catered lunches, chair massages, "wine down" Wednesdays and Friday "happy hours", encouraged to bring your dog to work, fun work environment (work hard, play hard!).

Cons

1. No real "level up" opportunities (or recognition) for Admin staff, especially at our remote locations. Focus is 99% on Management, Devs and Engineers.

2. Divisiveness between teams/groups that seems encouraged (and even perpetuated) by managers.

3. Feel disconnected from the Mother Ship (HQ) because of being a remote studio - would really like C-staff to visit more often.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More transparency, especially with the remote team folks who may not otherwise get information from their manager, the studio GM, etc. about changes, re-orgs, etc.

    I worked at Zynga as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Every amenity you would want in the headquarters, fully stocked kitchens and great meals. Managers are constantly looking out to help you in your career development. Fast iteration gave tons of room for improvement.

    Cons

    Some late nights trying to make deadlines, but most of the time this wasn't the case because of excellent Producers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on looking out for younger worker's career development. It's a huge motivator

    Incompetent management, no autonomy, promotions are based on facetime and who are your friends factors, long hours, stated values and reality could not be further from each other
