Great People, Occasional Hits

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Glu full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe people at Glu are great to work with and highly collaborative. Lots of opportunities to grow vertically or laterally.

ConsProduces more 'misses' than 'hits'. Has lost its start-up appeal years ago.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo many resources spent on overhead, needs to return to making great games that people will want to play, rather than hiring a squad of BI people to figure out how to squeeze every dime out of flops.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Management has virtually no technical depth, and will throw good money… Advice to Senior Management: Seek advice down the entire command chain. Talk to people many levels below your own on a regular basis. Learn… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
