The lights are on
It may not be an innovative strategy (this is Zynga we're talking about), but the company is attempting to stem the steady outpouring of executive talent by offering bigger bonuses.
Things haven't been great for Zynga lately, with lawsuits and resigning execs. To smooth things out, the company revealed in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing that it plans to offer larger performance-based bonuses to its executives. With any luck, the higher earning potential will stop the higher-ups at the company from heading for the door.
Zynga CEO Marc Pincus (who won a dubious honor last year) is not among those making more money; his annual salary was reduced to $1, an approach taken by other big-name leaders like Steve Jobs.

Ahh good. More money for the people that ruined the company in the first place.
Your company will fail. Repent for your sins,Zynga, or hellfire will purge your devil company!
If you cant tell, I hate these guys.
I know that dumping on Zynga is the cool thing to do, but on the unoriginal comment, remember that the darling of the gaming world (Minecraft) was based a game before it. That being said, the board of directors needs to 86 Marc Pincus.
Allow me to help. Pay me the millions and I'll be sure to help out.
Someone who thinks executives are grossly overpaid.
Zynga will eventually run itself to the ground anyway. Go for it!
This isn't going to work. If Zynga wants to survive, they need to provide more attractive salaries for new talent, not giving people who are dragging down the company more money.
Oh.... Zynga... Just stop...
LucasArts gets closed, but not Zynga? Zynga, the company that makes rip-off games. The company that gives video games a bad name. At least LucasArts had made some descent games in the past and was working on a new game that looked pretty cool.
Epic fail Zynga.
Aka "Zynga tries to convince others that they don't suck- and Fails."
So yet another way Zynga rips off ideas of others. XD
