    Former Employee - Product Manager
    Former Employee - Product Manager

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

    Pros

    - For Product Managers, it's basically boot camp. Don't plan to stay long, but you will learn a ton while there
    - Very rigorous a comprehensive on decision making and analysis
    - Go in with expectations that you won't have much work/life balance and things will be okay
    - Operationally, very efficient, great infrastructure
    - At least back in 2011/2012 - you genuinely felt like all teams were staffed with some of the best in the world at what they do (and for those that weren't - they still aspired to be the best)

    Cons

    (Depending on studio, the environment would vary greatly)

    The Game Designer opinions have traditionally been steam rolled by stats/PM - hence the games generally lack innovation. The stats have a higher probability of moving a metric, however those optimisations rarely lead to a better experience in the long run

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Zynga.

    Interview Details

    Elaborate interview process. They asked me about different question from the same Crack the Coding interview book. Which almost every interviewer uses.

    Not very innovative questions, but companies are looking for clarity of thought rather than skills these days.
