    I have been working at Glu full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Glu is a growing company, getting better every day. The co-workers are great and Glu is a serious company, looking out to lead the market. Good policies and smart people on key places are really improving the company quality level.

    Cons

    As the company work methods improve, some things like big crunchs are still an issue. It is one of the things that needs improvement.

    I worked at Glu full-time for 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.
