Featured Review

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.

Current Employee - Training Specialist

I have been working at Square full-time for less than a year

Pros

Civic responsibility, transparent leadership, strong benefits

Cons

Location transition makes it hard to bond with team
