No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Work is challenging and fun, learns a lot. Team is fun and friendly.

Cons

Management and decision making becomes horrible after the company is going down and desperately looking for a way out. Lots of talented people left.

Advice to Management

Don't be so political.
