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.

Learning at Incredible speed

Associate Product Manager (Former Employee)
Bangalore

I worked at Zynga full-time for more than a year

Pros- You get to work with some of the best people around
- Probably the best place for Product Management in India
- 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.
