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.

    High pay, free food, free gym,

    Incompetent management, no autonomy, promotions are based on facetime and who are your friends factors, long hours, stated values and reality could not be further from each other

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

    Pros

    1. A really great team of guys to work with every single day. They make work fun!

    2. The "Perks" - e.g. daily catered lunches, chair massages, "wine down" Wednesdays and Friday "happy hours", encouraged to bring your dog to work, fun work environment (work hard, play hard!).

    Cons

    1. No real "level up" opportunities (or recognition) for Admin staff, especially at our remote locations. Focus is 99% on Management, Devs and Engineers.

    2. Divisiveness between teams/groups that seems encouraged (and even perpetuated) by managers.

    3. Feel disconnected from the Mother Ship (HQ) because of being a remote studio - would really like C-staff to visit more often.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency, especially with the remote team folks who may not otherwise get information from their manager, the studio GM, etc. about changes, re-orgs, etc.
