product Job Reviews
Women who work in product departments have an overall job satisfaction level of 3.5, 46.2% of them believe there is gender equality in their firms, and make an average salary range of $80k-$100k.
Things are changing, hopefully for the better. This is a work in progress.
Some departments are much better than others for work-life balance. Policies are in place but compliance and enforcement is questionable. Using the work-life balance options is not widely supported making them difficult to utilize.
Do not work here! I was the only female in my DIVISION. Work-life balance doesn't exist (my manager used to have a spread-sheet where he kept track of who took time off and when). Maternity leave is too short (1 month paid). Compensation is also very low.
Family friendly cultur, but need to be a work horse to get promoted. If you choose to focus on family, you can sustain a reasonable balance at work but would have to give up growth
Every team at zynga has a different set of expectations and office culture. There was a high expectation to be a "company man" and many people to choose to work long hours and stay late in order to fast track thier promotions. These exceptation may be stressful for people with families. My team specifically was very chill, flexible, and low key but had occasional bouts of crunch. Other teams im told were like working on a sinking ship that was also on fire. That said, management style really varies, try to move onto a team that will work best for you. Benifits at the tiem i worked there were fantastic. Id say if you are young, go for it!
Long hours and lower pay than corporate jobs, but good people with a good mission
You have to be aggressive for what you want here. Women aren't promoted as often because they won't be aggressive in situations with upper management.
Some of the best maternity policies I've seen in the US. Amazing support for mothers with easy access parking spots and rooms for breastfeeding even at pop-up one-night events. Still, you will run into the usual set of employees looking past you or only hearing your argument after it has been repeated by a male colleague, not looking you in the eye, lower participation rates by women in groups, etc. We also need to see more women managers throughout the org.
For a small tech start-up, the ratio of women to men is pretty good, however, women are expected to do more things like clean up the kitchen, plan events, etc., which I find pretty sexist. The team here is diverse but some of the employees are from countries where it's common to make comments about how women look (she's hot, she is old, she looks nice today, etc.) that are totally inappropriate in US workplaces.
It seems like they are trying to improve the opportunities for women, but there are no women on the executive leadership team and I think maternity leave is only available via short term disability.
