Former Employee - Operations Manager in San Francisco, CA (US)

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.
