Unglued

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Glu full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThis applies to the now defunct London offices:

-Amazing office, great perks of a pool table, free soft drinks, arcade machine
-Great team spirit from the development staff

Cons-Terrible mismanagement at senior levels
-Very much behind the curve on innovation. Missed the boat on Facebook and Smartphone platforms despite numerous entreaties from staff.
-Badly paid
-No expectation management, were frequently told the company was doing well before another round of inevitable layoffs
-Very questionable hiring around some lead staff, who lacked basic competencies and appeared to have lied their way into senior positions.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a good, hard look at where you are in this industry and learn from more successful companies. Listen to your staff!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
