"Best Job EVER"Aug 2, 2019

Current Employee - People Operations

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

Pros

Saying I love working at Zynga is an understatement - I truly love coming into work and doing my job for the first time in my life. Zynga has the most incredible people, perks, benefits, rewarding... experiences, growth opportunities, events, and more. I feel super lucky to get to call this "work" every day. Also - the dogs here rule.

Cons

None come to mind

Current Employee - Lead Software Engineer

I have been working at Storm8 full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Storm8 is an great company to work for. You really get a lot of flexibility to find the best solution to any problem, and the entire engineering team is amazing. Everyone is very supportive, and... everyone helps everyone else to learn and grow. If at some point Storm8 begins hiring again, I would 100% recommend anyone and everyone apply. Your personal growth is only limited by your ambition and abilities. I went from engineer to lead very quickly simply because I wanted it and I really applied myself; and my efforts were recognized and awarded. Also, when things were good. They were really good. They took the whole company to Hawaii! And bonus's are amazing. Like my first bonus ever was over 30% of total salary.

Cons

Storm8 has been having trouble finding another hit success game since their initial success. We recently went through a massive set of layoffs and we're struggling to find something to really get... behind and make amazing.

Advice to Management

Listen less to the product management team about new game ideas, and listen more to your engineering team about what we can accomplish easily and quickly. Going all in on ideas pitched by people... who's entire career is about smooth talking the numbers is always a risky proposition.
