    I worked at Zynga full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    "Perks" like free food, gym, massages
    Lots of smart, interesting, motivated ground-level staff

    Cons

    Ambiguous expectations for many positions, especially less common ones
    Work-life balance awful if you have outside commitments
    Inexperienced management
    Politics, politics, politics... it's a game company, so prepare to play lots of games w/your job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking that "treating employees well" means throwing perks & dubious stock/bonus promises at them. Instead, staff your Operations and Partner teams properly and pay them with the same respect you give engineers. Be transparent with expectations, provide feedback, and for crying out loud so something about the drinking and sexual behavior at work.
