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

Pros

Food, Food, nothing much to mention about

Cons

>> Attitude of HR [Big heads] as Appraisal, Perks & Compensation is in their Hands. Never seen a company like this before.
   Its like supreme power given to Monkeys, their experience & Maturity level is way below their knees. Professionalism, Culture & Ethics is absolutely shitty.
>> Only people who lick HR boots get good hikes & perks, all other dedicated employees are ignored.
>> Not a place for prompt, disciplined, silent & smart workers.
>> HR promises many things while offering, hardly keep such promises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

>> Try to recognise people with open mindedness. Dont presume things & reward people of your choice.
>> All that glitters is not Gold, recognise individual's contribution towards work than their licking/boasting capabilities.
>> Stop playing with people's career. Day is not too far where everyone will witness the ship sinking.
>> Follow the 3M rule: Effective utilisation of Men, Material & Money - Core thing missing in Zynga [Colossal waste of 3M].

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

    Pros

    Food. Good enough facilities. Amiable security staff (nothing else to write !!)

    Cons

    In Zynga India HR and ceratain bosses has the ultimate say against any reason & justification. haughty and ludicrous HR top. Top notch favoritism. Shameless mouth-blabbering wins over dedication and skill. Corruption in art-outsourcing. The manager who initiated large amount art-outsourcing to certain indian companies draws huge amounts from them as fringe-benefit, monthly. preposterous country manager.

    Basicaly The top bosses wants to pocket as much dollars as possible from USA, while all this lasts. This is a place for mouth-blabbers, smart-talkers and shameless butt-kissers. Not a place for skilled folks who consider there careers important.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enjoy your life. But remember, if you are unethical and rotten to your subordinates , it reflects everywhere, even to yourself. Why this life?

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

    Pros

    Good food. Good compensation. There is nothing else good about Zynga.

    Cons

    The HR has control over everything that happens at Zynga.
    Performance does not matter
    Way too much office politics
    Career growth takes a backseat
    Contract employees are treated like crap
    The money and employees are underutilized.
    Its a sinking ship and nothing is being done to revive it.
    Very unorganised in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with new better and creative games and not just improvise on the same old existing games.
    There s way too much money spent on keeping the employees enterained which is a waste sometimes.
