Plenty of opportunities for growth. No opportunity for stability.

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

Pros

Moving up the ladder is very possible.

Cons

Constant change means, even if you move up the ladder, you constantly traverse uneven terrain. You direction will be "pivoted" at a moment's notice. This means what you've been working on gets tossed aside in favor of the latest flavor of the month.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pick a direction and stick to it. You're no longer a 50 employee studio. Rapid change at your size is a cancer.

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

    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?
