    Amazing till 2011. Changed drastically most that

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsZynga still has some talented people to work with. There is a strong analytical culture that if done right (like the early years) can be a great learning opportunity for people.

    ConsLost focus over time. Early employees left or checked out.
    The management let strong people leave and were left with some poor employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower employees like the early years. Keep on your toes to keep innovating and looking for new disruptions.

    Associate Product Manager (Former Employee) Bangalore

    Pros- You get to work with some of the best people around

    - Awesome food / recreational facilities

    Cons- Work / Life Balance will take a hit, at least initially. That might be true of any firm.
    - No clarity beyond the next 3 months. Things / Teams change very quickly. If the chaos is okay, you should thrive here.
