Former Employee - Associate Product Manager in Bangalore (India)

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

Pros

- You get to work with some of the best people around
- Probably the best place for Product Management in India
- Awesome food / recreational facilities

Cons

- Work / Life Balance will take a hit, at least initially. That might be true of any firm.
- No clarity beyond the next 3 months. Things / Teams change very quickly. If the chaos is okay, you should thrive here.

    Pros

    Free food
    Happy hour on Fridays
    Get to work with some of the newest technologies
    Super smart co-workers

    Cons

    Lots of constant pressure to meet arbitrary deadlines
    Quality is not a priority in the end product
    Management has very little visibility on who is actually doing a good job
    Perks are getting less and less and noticeably less month to month

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture needs to change now! Smaller development teams and with a purpose. Too many project managers. We don't need 3 PM's when there's only 4 developers!

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

    Pros

    If one is a freaher it is a good place to start off with since they pay well to attract talent.
    Food , food, food if you are going to enjoy this please join...
    GM's are extremely talented and a good lot to work with but the corruption is so high that it takes away the pleasure of working with these people.

    Cons

    The crime party - Country Manager, Ops managers, HR head, HR manager..... If you would like to understand how corruption works Zynga is the best place to get this information... The management here mainly takes care of their own pockets and ensures that the lions share of bonuses fall into their pockets. The crime party never lets down each other.... The vendors they use are all names sakes of the crime party and they make a killing in each and every deal.
    HR openly supports fraud and prides sexual harrassment... and you can succeed in this place only if ypu are one amongst them. TRANSPARENCY is non existent in any of the dictionaries of the management..They like to make the US feel that "ALL IS WELL".
    The management lacks maturity in dealing with any any situations. Escalations go to the Country Manager and HR Head who are not people who cannot think independently and take decisions, their decisions are based on favouritism and the degree of consequence depends on how well an employee licks these peoples boots.......
    Its a mini version of how politicians work in our country for their own benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
