I worked at Zynga as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Awesome perks. I didnt feel like going home because the environment is so good. Instead of taking random coffee breaks you can actually take legit awesome breaks which increases your daily productivity and you end up going home super satisfied with your progress while not being tired at all.

Cons

Its very hard to point out the downsides of WORKING at Zynga. You may hate the games they make, or their business policies, but its definitely one of the best places to work at in the gaming industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The work needs to be distributed a little better. A common trend is that 80% of the work is done by 20% of the people. So you either end up working your brains out, or you have it pretty chill.

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