I worked at Zynga full-time
Zynga is great training ground for anyone that wants to learn data-driven product management and freemium business models.
the declining popularity of some games and stagnant revenue has hurt morale. Sometimes data drives too many decisions
Advice to Management
The current model won't take the company to the next level. You need to take bigger risks and enter new markets
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Zynga.
I dropped off my resume at a Career fair and the entire process took about 2 months from when they contacted me. I had 3 phone interviews. A first one with a recruiter asking about my past experience. Then a first round interview for 45 minutes and then final round with 2 back to back 45 minute interviews. Questions were pretty standard data structures, differences between languages, etc.
