Can't get it together

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Kirkland, WA

ProsMix of highly experienced and more junior employees, sense of teamwork within teams, comprehensive deployment strategy, casual atmosphere

ConsWay too many managers, micromanagement, "flavor of the month" strategizing, people that stick up are nailed down, every goalpost is a moving one. Overall the company has a good idea but no idea how to execute on it and keeps getting in its own way.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are your own worst enemy. Empower teams, get on their side, help direct them to success, then get out of their way and stop holding them back.

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

    Developer (Former Employee) Kirkland, WA

    I worked at Glu full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: - Lower-level employees are passionate about games and some can be a joy to work with. - Small on-site gym with showers… Cons: - Niccolo M. de Masi, the CEO of Glu Mobile, and the VP that came from the SF HQ use negative reinforcement more than positive. … Advice to Senior Management: - Take a lesson from your former Griptonite studio head and treat your employees like people rather than a production line. - Listen to feedback… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
