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

Pros

Smart people, very focused, a great example of how to use metrics to run a business, great pay, good benifits

Cons

A bit of a "work late" culture, and the people don't actually enjoy video games!

    Pros

    There are a ton of smart people, working with cutting edge technology. There is always something new to learn and can often translate that to your working life right away.

    Cons

    Things are a little turbulent after the IPO. The change to a public company has worn away some of the startup feel that the company once had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Additional communication to the lower levels would go a long way. A lot of things don't seem to filter down so sometimes it feels like nobody is at the helm. The recent CEO change could help with that?

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

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, excellent culinary department, but most of all great people.

    Cons

    You need to have an intense interest in social games. It's also still mostly driven by metrics and needs more emphasis on good game design.
