    I have been working at Glu full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance: Employees are encouraged to have a life outside of the office.

    Positive studio culture: In general, everyone here gets along very well, and we regularly have fun activities. We decorate team areas to suit our individual personalities.

    Successful products: While we are not making Candy Crush numbers, we have a successful product that allows us to pursue fun and interesting projects without having to lay people off.

    The studio takes care of its employees: Managers and directors do everything they can to take care of the employees. There is genuine concern about everyone's well-being.

    Transparent communication: Where applicable and possible (I understand there are legal areas we can't touch), communication is totally open and transparent. I rarely feel "in the dark" when it comes to studio and project statuses.

    Flexible working arrangements: It's very easy to work from home if needed. This is especially beneficial for people who live in Seattle and areas far outside of Bellevue.

    Cons

    Communication between departments is rocky and needs work. For all the efforts made to unify the teams, there is still an "us and them" approach to things.

    Career paths are unclear. Many people are unsure of how they can progress in their jobs.

    Managers are often overtasked and spread too thin. Some employees are expected to be both a manger and an individual contributor on their projects.

    There is a constant push of doing things faster and cheaper while maintaining high quality standards. This often results in fast and cheap and lowering the quality of our work, because, in the end, it's all about the money.

    Too much focus on hitting our bonus targets. Yes, bonuses are really nice to have, but constantly using that as an incentive and reminder to do better/more work makes me uncomfortable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out into the general team areas and talk to the individuals on each team. Don't stay in a silo in the director's area. Don't just stick with your respective disciplines/specialties. Branch out and get that "cross-func" thing going that you talk so much bout.

    Balance out salaries, especially for the employees who have been with the company/group for years. There are many people who have been promoted into positions with more responsibilities, but their pay doesn't match. People in lower-ranked positions can often be paid more.
