Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Very smart people, and seriously, nothing beats Game development in terms of engineering challenges.

Cons

Bad press and negative outside perceptions due to some unfitted employees (possibly from too many bad acquisitions and recruitments).

Advice to Management

Focus more on hiring the right people with the right mindset.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Zynga full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Zynga moves quick and treats its employees well (despite what news reports may say). The benefits and the free meals are a great perk. Working on some of the biggest name social games in the world doesn't hurt either.

    Cons

    We haven't shifted with the market enough yet. Getting games out on mobile is good, new games on web is great, but where are the non ville games?

    Advice to Management

    Take risks.
