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

    Pros

    The people in kirkland were awesome. Positions that become resume fodder for better companies.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay (contractors make more than FTE), poor management, poor decisions, useless execs, redundant, time-wasting meetings, and proving you have talent isn't enough. If the project/studio isn't making money, be prepared for huge lay offs no matter what the execs promise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flip whatever you are doing. The current process isn't working. Allow teams to create games and not just mimic popular competitor games. Let projects release before they are deemed failures.

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

    Pros

    It was fun making mobile games and learning the "freemium" business.

    Cons

    Management is absurd. And, even as they fire 68 people in one day, they continue to hire VPs and Presidents. The management is absurdly top-heavy for a company that has never turned a dollar in profit. And their current flavor of the month strategy is to shrink game teams and add more business people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign, do your shareholders and workers a favor.
