I have been working at Zynga as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

For a contractor, free food isn't that bad. Not to mention, though I have heard horror stories of other studios, the particular studio that I worked in was pleasant and the people I worked with were friendly and helpful. Also, it was very refreshing to have a voice within the development process and be listened to.

Cons

One studio out of multiple studios which were pleasant... the same could not be said for the others, which were most likely due to the fact that many of them had the strong possibility of folding. In addition, sometimes the negative mentality of other contractors was very demoralizing at times.

    I worked at Zynga full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Free food & coffee! Bring your dogs to work!
    - Get to work on games that millions of people play.
    - Young, energetic culture.

    Cons

    - Lack of true long-term strategy. Arguably hit its peak already.
    - Poor management at all levels.
    - Very short-term decision making and constant "pivots".
    - Lack of creativity & imagination. Primarily numbers driven decision-making.
