Think twice before coming to work here.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Zynga

ProsThe company spends an excessive amount of money to provide their employees with food, snacks, freebies, weekly happy hours, and team outings.

ConsUnlimited vacation and no formal vacation policy means no vacation build-up and leaves you wondering when if at all, time can be taken off. If you leave the company for any reason, there is no pay out (however, no company is required to do so).

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide training opportunities for all departments. Focus on retaining current talent and not constantly replacing people as the company evolves. A successful company also cares slightly about employees without necessarily throwing down money. Departments that deal with employees directly need to be readily available and know what they are talking about, otherwise this can be potentially a huge liability.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
