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

Pros

At Zynga you are next to really smart people doing everything at grand scale. Perks are awesome.

Cons

Big company, so not really a startup culture anymore.

Advice to Management

Make the company vision trickle down further down the chain. Whatever you say at the company quarterlies gets completely lost and ignored 4+ levels down from Pincus.
