Featured Review

I have been working at Glu Mobile

Pros

The people and culture cannot be understated. The appreciation across teams, the leadership focus on the people, the process improvements to keep people at the top of importance are all key. Perks,... benefits, food, fun, pay are all good.

Cons

Vacation policy isn’t as good as other SF/Bay Area tech companies.

Advice to Management

Keep up the focus on people, and look into the vacation policy especially when compared to SF, other tech, and other gaming companies.

Current Employee - Director of Design

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

Pros

I’ve been a game developer for over 25 years. My experience with Zynga has exceeded my expectations in every aspect including compensation, benefits, and projects. The biggest dream come true,... however, is the work-life balance: being given the trust and autonomy to work remotely when needed. Additionally, Zynga’s commitment to employee health and safety during the Coronavirus pandemic has made quarantining a smooth adjustment, and allowed the company to continue to grow and actually flourish since more folks are sheltering at home playing Zynga games. I am grateful and humbled to be part of the Zynga family!

Cons

I waited too long to look for a job here.
