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)

I have been working at MZ full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

MZ is a great place for folks who are motivated by their personal growth. There's very little that gets in the way of making big contributions, and impact is regularly recognized and rewarded.... There's huge potential for people that are self driven and not afraid of stepping up. That said, MZ is not for the faint of heart or folks just looking for a job. Awesome perks and benefits that outclass most any other privately held company, and rival any of the name brand public companies like Google, FB, etc. Last years change in executive leadership and renewed focus on gaming has been a blessing! Teams are more focused and aligned, and the tone around campus is brighter than I've seen in years.

Cons

Very aggressive schedules and goals. Makes an exciting work environment, but also takes it's toll. We are a business and need to keep the bills paid, but hopeful we can find a bit more balance... between company objectives, catering to our player base, and employee lifestyles.

Advice to Management

Keep up the momentum! We're making a lot of positive changes around top down transparency, focus on gaming products, and how the company will mature. Let's keep pushing the envelope! Keep a good... pulse on employee engagement. Our teams work really hard, and staying engaged with front line employees will be the key to keeping moral high as we take MZ to it's next stage as a company.
