IAmA Former FullTime Zynga Engineer => quit 6 months ago. Not a contractor, (Z treats em like shit).

EDIT : I realize now that, I don't really give a shit about what "industry people" think.
So here it is. My name is SLADE VILLENA, I am mercenary game developer, and formerly a mismanaged engineer at Zynga. I am also a US Marine Artilleryman, I was hoping to bring a unique school of professionalism to Zynga, but, they don't grok "professional". I will continue this thread until Zynga's investors stop joining the gravy train, and start investing in real companies, not silicon valley pyramid schemes.
If this means necrobumping this thread, so fucking be it.
I was not fired from the company, I QUIT. I worked at Zynga for 8 months, I can tell you any disgusting detail, before you invest in a sinking ship. I can tell you about Zynga's mangled code base. I can tell you all about Brogrammers. Ask me anything. Seriously.
