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

Pros

The Zynga spirit drives the company to be successful and pushes through challenging times
The constant quest on how to be more successful, make better games, increase value for our players
Yes, the food is amazing

Cons

The outside reputation and perception of Zynga are at least one year behind the reality of the current culture, which I have found very positive.

Advice to Management

Keep building up a more game development centric culture
Push to hire the best talents

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

    Pros

    Start up feel with the security of a large company.
    Meritocracy - teams that contribute get rewarded as such.
    Management team - tons of industry veterans. Most recent reorg has everyone in the right roles.
    Data driven decision making

    Cons

    Work life balance is a problem for most. Unlimited vacation policy is rarely able to be utilized to decompress and detach from the office.
    High expectations from management with regards to turn around times that are sometimes unreasonable.
