Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

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

Pros

Unlike many other game companies in the Bay Area, Glu Mobile considers long-term growth in its talent. This is a place that understands that workers can easily move to a big tech company with their... same skill set, and, as such, has competitive compensation. Their benefits are excellent, and their offices are centrally located in downtown San Francisco.

Cons

With their recent acquisition by EA, it's unclear how the company is going to be structured in a few years.
