"I was very unhappy at Zynga. Engineers are often not treated with respect, and time is almost never given for adequately engineered solutions."
"Zynga is a good company. But I left it for family."
"I worked Quality Assurance for one year for Zynga and it was a great place to work. They clearly care very much about their employees. Some of the benefits include catered lunches and dinners, theme parties every Friday, and excellent benefits. My only complaint about my time spent at Zynga is that my pay was too low for the amount and quality of work I provided."
"Zynga is a pioneering company in social gaming which has its studios located worldwide. It is looking to expand into mobile and tablet markets with increased investments in creative talent pool. I've worked in its SRE division for more than a year now and found the people to be smart and capable of handling tasks on hand with ease and minimal supervision."
"I started at Zynga in May of 2011 where I art directed their cooking game, Chefville. It was a great learning experience because I got to work with a lot of talented people with lots of great ideas. There were a lot of great games coming out from the company for the Facebook platform. Zynga was the leader of social games with its line up of popular titles like Farmville, Cityville, Chefville, etc."
"A company that is in need of operational maturity and a smaller portfolio to repeat their success on the web in the mobile space."
"Great company. Would recommend this company to any UI artist or game artist who is interested in what art is needed in social gaming."
"Worked at Zynga gaming network for about four years with some of the best artists, game designers, general managers and developers. Learned a lot about creating art for social gaming and customer relationships. Picked up several technical, 2D art and UI artist skills working at Zynga Gaming Network. I would recommend this company to anyone who is looking to learn about social gaming and to meet some of the most enthusiastic people in the social gaming industry."
"Growth is not according to work we have done. Lot of politics. Growth is only for people who work less and talk more."
"Zynga is a great place to work."
"A really creative, very large company in the midst of trying to keep up with market changes. I worked in Quality Engineering, and this was an eye opener, since the quality of code was not what I had been accustomed to seeing in the medical field. Definitely a good company, and a nice place to work, and all good people."
"The early days were fantastic. Pay was strong, career advancement was great, perks were better than 99% of companies out there. Unfortunately the company is now in its downswing and has been sinking for some time.Work life balance is difficult in a San Francisco based game studio. Do everything in your power to get onto a profitable game team for your job security. Those that find themselves on unproven projects or in remote studios are at high risk for layoffs and will not get as much pay."
"Zynga is a very fun place to work, but the work done sometimes isn't the most fun."
"The SF art director wasn't the most approachable individual but the team was a dream to work with.Compensation is very competitive and it seems that they do appreciate your time spent. Work/like balance isn't the greatest. It works well if you're not married or have kids. Overall, I recommend it."
