    Pros

    It is a big company with big brands. You will learn a lot about how to run a successful business and how to keep users entertained with as much content as their hearts desire.

    Cons

    You may experience poor management that has risen to the top a bit too quickly due to the massive turnover of talent. You may also experience a lack of focus on quality design and innovation due to our fast following methodology and analytically focused design principles. This can be a great place to work but also can make you feel a bit stuck. It really depends on your job title.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend creative types stay clear away. Designers, artists etc... This is not the place for you nor will you be accommodated with an aggressive salary or career path. If it's your first job then yes take it but if it isn't go elsewhere. There are better places to work where you get the same if not better experience.

    I worked at Zynga full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is no good reason to work here. Good food & coffee, free snacks. Video games and nice gym on main campus.

    Cons

    CEO has no idea how to run a large company. Constant thrash and pivots. CEO says stuff like, "When you come to the conversation understanding that I'm always right you'll have a better outcome." This company cannot succeed with current management in place. Highly, highly political environment, not a meritocracy as they say. Squeaky wheel gets the grease.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves.
