    I have been working at Zynga

    Pros

    - Good food
    - Lots of learning of how system, scalibility and coding can be worked/optimised
    - Supporting colleagues
    - HR, Colleagues. Managers even GM of the comapny in India is reachable at any time(literally)
    - Extreme visibility, people know you exist in team and are working on things which is always important.

    Cons

    - Tight deadlines at time screwing work-life balance (not always)
    - Software developers have more pressure than other teams like game design /art and even if design had fault in there end, engineering pays up spending extra hours to recitfy it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more engineers than designers, you really need engineers more than designers to clean up the mess at times.

    I have been working at Zynga full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Works on great technologies as being a gaming company have to. Work-life balance is not an issue. With the new CEO company is moving to become a mature MNC. People were great but not now. Although hiring is going on which have attracted some great people to the company.

    Cons

    Rewards are not as per the mark. You might not get rewarded for your hardwork if you belong to some game whichi is not doing great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more planning and build games in India as well instead of just transistioning dying games. Also hire some better PM , all PM's currently are of no use although they are from IIMs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire people for Bangalore center , tell them exactly what they have to do , I have seen your HRs just making them speak with some people who will tell them lies about work just to make join. This should not be happening.
