    I worked at Glu full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

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