I have been working at Zynga full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Start up feel with the security of a large company.
Meritocracy - teams that contribute get rewarded as such.
Management team - tons of industry veterans. Most recent reorg has everyone in the right roles.
Data driven decision making

Cons

Work life balance is a problem for most. Unlimited vacation policy is rarely able to be utilized to decompress and detach from the office.
High expectations from management with regards to turn around times that are sometimes unreasonable.

    Pros

    Nice building, food, snacks. Paycheck & benefits OK.

    Cons

    Incompetent management. Pincus does deserve credit for seeing the Facebook wave before everyone else in the lineup, but that's about it. Maybe if he'd spent more time paying attention to what was going on instead of screwing others out of their stock or counting his $ after the best timed secondary offering ever, things would be different. Other big names (Van Natta, Schappert, Cottle, etc.) not worth $100k apiece annually let alone the tens of millions they walked away with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late...and they wouldn't take good advice anyway.
