    I worked at Zynga

    Pros

    Pace (but see below); reach (millions of users - for now)

    Cons

    * No sense of company direction; Zynga cannot come up with a strategy to overcome the fact that it is entirely dependent on Facebook. * It is a loose collection of "studios" with little or no sharing of resources between them, resulting in serious inefficiency. * Disingenuousness is pervasive and seeps down all the way from the very top. * Zynga is not a meritocratic organization. Pettiness, paranoia, fear and back-stabbing...
