The Little Engine that WILL

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsTop quality studio team plus all the right monetization experts to make Glu the leader in mobile gaming. The exec team has the best relationships with each of the platforms. The location within San Francisco is tops as close to all public trans.

ConsIf you are looking for a job to coast, then look elsewhere. Those who perform are definately rewarded and those who do not are let go.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up! By rewarding the performers and letting go of the underperformers, you have created a culture where one is judge on performance.

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