    "Great people, poor management, poor environment, lacking creativity"

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

    Pros

    You will meet a lot of people that are very talented. I was quite surprised when I showed up.

    Cons

    The management is terrible, never leaving room in the schedule to be creative. You will be forced to follow orders and work late nights. It feels like a factory instead of a creative environment.

    Advice to Management

    DUDES. LET YOUR ARTISTS AND DEVELOPERS BE CREATIVE.
