    I have been working at Zynga as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to try new methods of recruiting. Stress but good kind of stress. Stress to achieve not micromanagement version of stress. Great people to work with. Everyone out to help one another. Don't need to watch your back. It's easy to recruit for a company doing super well. This company has its challenges and therefore makes you a better recruiter. Managers and engineers are very talented. They keep the bar high even during tough times which is good. New engineers are guaranteed a challenging work environment with lots to learn even if you're a senior recruiter or engineer.

    Cons

    Contractors not treated like equal. Not a big deal but sometimes inhibits your ability to do a good job on behalf of the client. Company only hires recruiters as contract-to-hire which limits their ability to hire top recruiters.

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

    Pros

    The environment is stellar and the people are absolutely amazing! You will make tons of friends, learning and teaching others all the while. If you're not having the time of your life, you're doing it wrong.

    Cons

    It's such an awesome place to work, you could end up living there if you aren't careful. Between the convenience and amenities, it can be difficult to keep track of how much time you're actually spending at work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing things great, just try not to forget the little guys.
