    Pros

    There are some very talented people working here and the culture is generally fun. Food and onsite gym is a plus.

    Cons

    There are too many missed opportunities when it comes to making quality games. The company is lagging behind our competition with innovation, fun and mass market appeal. There is extreme favoritism when getting bonuses and level ups, you need to be willing to play the game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You talk innovation yet you stay in the safe zone and fast follow our competition. How about you actually give us the opportunity to make new and original titles?

    Employees treated great - but no vision and all talk of innovation is just noise

    I worked at Zynga full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Catered meals every day, great benefits, decent pay, good creative people with a lot of talent, good workstations, not too much crunch

    Cons

    most good ideas are ignored, high turnover, company says it needs to innovate yet it slams the door in the face of any actual unproven innovation. The company seems to like the buzz words but not the actual meaning behind any of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can talk the talk, but you don't seem to have any one in charge who actually is willing to walk the walk. Figure out who is stifling the innovation and get rid of them.
