Current Employee - Senior Designer

I have been working at Glu Mobile full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Great team: the team I work on is like a family in many respects - team members genuinely care about each other and look out for each other, and legitimately enjoy spending time together at the... office and at team events - Work/life balance: unlike some other places I've worked at, Glu does a good job of limiting overtime, getting people out of the office at a reasonable hour, and accommodating folks with families - Generous benefits: from my own experience and from other coworkers I've spoken with, compensation is typically market-competitive to above-market, with a wide range of additional benefits like free lunches and snacks, 401(k) matching, and annual performance bonuses

Cons

- Office location: While the office space itself is nice, it's located in a neighborhood that can be a bit sketchy at times, particularly in the evening (not a huge con, but it's a factor to consider... if you're taking mass transit)

Current Employee - Senior Leader

I have been working at Big Fish Games full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

There's a renewed energy and focus at Big Fish, genuinely believe there are good (if not great) times ahead. Strong and motivated leadership and a supportive parent company. Spectacular new office... space (2018), in an awesome downtown location.

Cons

It is a hit driven business, need to be tenacious and at the same time patient.

Advice to Management

All roads lead to successful game launches - focus on likely successes.
