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

Pros

Fast paced environment and top performers are rewarded very well. If you're the type of person who likes to get up and reach for your goals, this place could work very well for you. New university grads seem to do especially well at this company and it's a great first mark on your resume.

The perks at HQ are amazing with an onsite gym, free breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, onsite barista..etc.

Cons

Some departments and their employees have become numbers on a spreadsheet with teams sometimes being restructured suddenly with no input from the employee. Unfortunately, this does not inspire loyalty and the rate of attrition has been rising.

    Pros

    - Good benefits
    - Competitive environment

    Cons

    - Culture has soured in lieu of profitability
    - Limited room for advancement
    - Difficulty adapting to process innovation

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for individuals to advance their careers, what is the point of a highly competitive environment without the reward?

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

    Pros

    There are a ton of smart people, working with cutting edge technology. There is always something new to learn and can often translate that to your working life right away.

    Cons

    Things are a little turbulent after the IPO. The change to a public company has worn away some of the startup feel that the company once had.

    Advice to Management

    Additional communication to the lower levels would go a long way. A lot of things don't seem to filter down so sometimes it feels like nobody is at the helm. The recent CEO change could help with that?
