It would be bit difficult to judge all these companies on the parameters you've provided. The companies you've mentioned work in different domains so you will have to pick up a company that offers work in the field of your interest. Couple of pointers from my side that might help you make a wiser decision:-

1. Work Culture: Startup companies will offer you a more friendly work culture and flexibility to work on different domains. Zynga may offer you the American startup culture which you might enjoy. So is the case with Flipkart. Big companies will offer you bigger campuses and perks and better salary. However funded startups and successful startups will match the industry benchmarks.

2. Type Of Work: You'll have to be selective in deciding where you go for internship. 6 months time is long enough to learn new things. I'd prefer a startup company any day over a big company as you can take up lot of responsibility and directly be under the eye of company management. However that's your personal choice. Find out what kind of work these companies offer to you by writing to their HRs or concerned authorities and you'll have a better idea.

3. Possibility Of Job Conversion: I think that problem is more or less solved. Almost every company you mentioned above is hiring these days. It might be difficult to get into companies like Zynga, NVIDIA, Oracle, JN and Flipkart (No clue about others). But if you can make a good impression in 6 months, you'll get through easily. No one wants to lose an already trained intern.

Hope this answers your question to some extent. All the best!
