    Pros

    *Everyone is extremely good at their jobs and willing to go above and beyond at all times.
    *Managers are honest and helpful, not cutthroat or robotic.
    *The teamwork is supportive and fun, everyone is in it together rather than competitive.
    *PF takes care of employees in any way they can, definitely prioritized over anything else.
    *Company learns as they go, experts in some things, growing in other areas. Lots of room for personal impact on company's success.
    *Your career will be on a fast track here, high chance of many promotions.

    Cons

    *Hard work, will lose sleep during crunch time, typical for industry.
    *Roles and duties change, sometimes no choice.
    *Things are always unknown when acquired by another company, especially Glu Mobile.
    *Occasionally there are unreasonable expectations for workload, though it is often worked out as everyone learns what works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Check in with employees more often about personal stress levels to make sure people aren't being overworked, and perhaps things can be distributed more equally on and off.
    *Could use more employees at all times.
    *Unfair that Art Team can work from home more often than other employees, though everyone understands that is up to managers of teams. Would be nice if departments felt like they had more equal treatment across the company.
    *Be more sympathetic during delivery of difficult news, and don't let Glu mobile ever deliver it.
