Pros

Cons

finance, marketing side very separated from software side; lacked unity and open communications between the two sides.

    I have been working at Glu full-time

    Pros

    -Great people in the trenches. -People are passionate about trying to do the best with what they are given.

    Cons

    -Low pay (really low compared to average) -Management constantly changes their mind and demands unreasonable last minute change. -Understaffed and over worked, they expect dramatic turnaround in short periods of time to his arbitrarily set dates. -Most of the management who cared about the employees were removed/let go/left with the latest rift. Most people feel they are alone on an island. -All decision making comes from SF with little discussion from the team in Kirkland. -No real sense of having any room for growth. They give you the work and responsibility but no title or raise as compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop jerking everyone around all the time. It is impossible to build any team momentum or work efficiently when directions constantly change 180 degrees.
