I worked at Zynga as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Every amenity you would want in the headquarters, fully stocked kitchens and great meals. Managers are constantly looking out to help you in your career development. Fast iteration gave tons of room for improvement.

Cons

Some late nights trying to make deadlines, but most of the time this wasn't the case because of excellent Producers.

Advice to Management

Keep on looking out for younger worker's career development. It's a huge motivator

    I worked at Zynga full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Zynga gives lots of autonomy to product managers - you really do lead the direction for the product!
    The nature of their product allows for really quick data analysis and ability to apply those learnings with new features very quickly. You'll be able to go from idea to release of features in days or weeks, not months. Numbers make people accountable: it will be clear whether you're features are doing well or not and why.

    Cons

    Focus on metrics can be a bit myopic at times... to the detriment of things that are hard to quantify like "fun" for users. Long term sometimes suffers at expense of short term
    With power comes responsibility and sometimes long work hours (certainly with stress if/when your product isn't doing as well as expected)
