I have been working at Glu full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

There is a lot to learn about the mobile apps business at Glu. Culture is very open about what is happening with marketing, roadmap etc.

Cons

Too many cooks for the same tasks and not enough accountability. Glu needs to hire more competent people instead of keeping around or promoting incompetent people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less knee jerk reactions.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Glu full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Office location in downtown SF

    Cons

    Glu copies instead of innovates and is it's own worst enemy. They don't believe in leading the way in anything. HR managers were some of the worst I've ever met and totally unprofessional often changing stories and making things up. Marketing VP was totally incompetent and stifles creativity His marketing department is a "boys club". Not a very welcoming place for women in gaming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Niccolo....he's running the company into the ground and find someone to innovate instead of be a follower in the industry. The reality is Glu is too big and too top heavy. Their fate is sealed and 2013 will be met with more layoffs as the company slowly falls apart.
