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.

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

    Pros

    There will be lot of team outings. Food is amazing. Work depends on what team you get into. People are fun.

    Cons

    work depends on what team you get into and for most parts its sucky. Work life balance is pretty much screwed up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    come up with better games and game-play rather than reskinning the same gameplay all the time

    I have been working at Zynga

    Pros

    Zynag is so different from where I have worked before. Free meals, snacks and drinks. We work very hard, but we play hard too. Dogs are all around which I love. Technology is everywhere so it is a career boost for me.

    Cons

    Lots of distractions during the day, so if you like peace and quite this is not the place for you. No offices, no cubicles and dogs barking. However it has helped me learn to focus and be more interactive when needed. You hear bad things in the news, not true!
