      Challenging & Collaborative Place to Work

      Pros

      Challenging Work: Every game is different in the sense that it has its own design language and interaction patterns. As an experience designer, you get to work on new challenges with every new feature in the game which demands good amount of research and design process to nail down on an optimum design solution. Ownership & Responsibilities: Best thing about working at Zynga is that you own your work. How we as an individual or XD function can contribute to the success of our games is completely driven by us. Zynga trusts in their employees and expect them to deliver with responsibilities. You will not see any micro-management culture in Zynga. Growth Opportunities: Zynga provides enough growth opportunities to shape your career as you want. Your current quality of work and dedication is appreciated much more than your previous background or degree. Collaborative Environment: Gaming is a very fast paced industry and to match up with that pace collaboration is the key. Zynga has the highly collaborative work culture between different functions (Design, Development, PM, etc.). Best in the corporate I have seen so far! Taking Care: Zynga takes good care of their employees with a good work-life balance.

      Cons

      Gaming in India is still an emerging field. So, most of the games we currently work on are targeted for players in global western countries.

      Pros

      Company culture is awesome and very employee friendly policies. Benefits are good. Competitive salary and good hikes.

      Cons

      Managers are not good at all. They promote anyone with no managerial skills to manager level and it becomes a nightmare for their reportees. So even after above listed pros I left this company bacause my manager is was not good.

      Pros

      Zynga is a good place to be in the video game business in India. The company's policy towards employees, work life balance, work culture and emphasis on diversity and inclusion is commendable. While the vision is good, execution is often poor. However, compared to other places, the work environment is great.

      Cons

      The local leadership leaves much to be desired. With a very few exceptions leadership is weak, favouritism is rampant, accountability amongst leaders is also low. There is little transparency and accountability in hiring, appraisals and mentorship. HR is unreliable, particularly in hiring.
