Good to great.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsIndustry leader. SF location great. Company knows how to pivot during difficult times. New executive team has true industry leading expertise and runs circles around prior folks.

ConsPivoting during difficult times can be distracting for teams. Had inefficient studios in Brazil and Kirkland who couldn't learn how to make games that were stand alone profitable. Brazil had to be shut down and Kirkland seriously reduced to cross the chasm.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave all hands meetings with multi locations present. Explain to teams the need for stand alone studios needing to be stand alone self sufficient. Keep improving the talent hiring.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Top heavy management. Strangled creative teams.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at Glu full-time


    Pros: Free Caltrain pass. Stable income. Creative talent was monumental in the studio. I've never worked… Cons: The company is ridiculously top-heavy. Demands are made on the studios to add flavor-of-the-month features that have proven time and time again… Advice to Senior Management: Start listening to the people who actually create your video games. Half of you have never touched a game in your life, much less built… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
