    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.
