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

    Pros

    Nice building, food, snacks. Paycheck & benefits OK.

    Cons

    Incompetent management. Pincus does deserve credit for seeing the Facebook wave before everyone else in the lineup, but that's about it. Maybe if he'd spent more time paying attention to what was going on instead of screwing others out of their stock or counting his $ after the best timed secondary offering ever, things would be different. Other big names (Van Natta, Schappert, Cottle, etc.) not worth $100k apiece annually let alone the tens of millions they walked away with.

    Advice to Management

    Too late...and they wouldn't take good advice anyway.

    Freedom of operation, studios run as small businesses inside zynga

    Sort out the green light process, HR should let business leads manage people
