Pros

No1 company in Social gaming which has a huge potential Great package(salary, bonus, stock) Cool cutting edge tech Great benefits (delicious food, party, massage) Zynga is definitely one of the most successful in following 10 years It is the right place for the person who works hard and productive.

Cons

long hours of work, but it's the same for every start-up company Many Micromanagement Zynga is very ambitious, that's very correct, but it should have a clearer objective and strategy Have a clear company culture, this is very important for the company in future

Advice to Management

Reduce the micromanagement in company. Make a clearer vacation policy, every one needs break for some time. Reward policy also needs to be refined.

    No work-life balance, meritocracy for very few, politics over performance.

    Pros

    - Company is successful and well-known - Free food, drinks, and snacks - Team trips to Vegas and other locations if your group happens to be "killing it". - Can bring your dog to work.

    Cons

    - The companies core values are lies. - Few positions get ownership over their work and performance - Constant politics and backstabbing make it hard for performers to see any real advancement. - Management is shuffled around often so promises don't need to be fulfilled and the next person can pump their team up about how they are going to make everything better. - Much of the companies management comes from EA, you can basically consider this EA on Facebook when it comes to how employees are treated, they know there is a never ending stream of new employees who want to make games and work at a big name so burning people out isn't a concern. - No tangible career path, requirements will never be defined, and opportunities to meet vague requirements are never given even when requested. - No formal vacation policy, which sounds good in theory but in reality it means there is always a new deadline and now isn't really a good time for you to abandon the team... - Deadlines are never based in reality, unless you consider a 60+ hour work week normal. - New hires receive no equity - People bring their dogs, some are great, others go to the bathroom everywhere, and add a funk to your work area.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your employees right, free food is not a substitute for recognition, promotion, and pride in the work you do.
