    I worked at Glu Mobile full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Since Glu Washington (GluW) was acquired as an independent developer and then given a fairly long leash, we felt in-control of our own destinies (for better and for worse). The local company was put together very well, and I enjoyed working with everyone else in the office. We moved at a pace that kept things exciting, but studio management also understood when schedules needed to shift to prevent excessive crunch time. The studio had a lot of experienced talent in it, and it was fun and satisfying to work with people who really knew what they were doing.

    Cons

    After appearing to support the studio's current plans, Glu HQ somewhat-suddenly decided to lay us all off. At the time of the layoff, GluW's properties were still profitable; and while our development assets were being transitioned to a new studio, we were commended on our production quality. I can't speak for their local contexts, but several other Glu studios were laid off around the same time.

    I have been working at Glu Mobile

    Pros

    The people and culture cannot be understated. The appreciation across teams, the leadership focus on the people, the process improvements to keep people at the top of importance are all key. Perks, benefits, food, fun, pay are all good.

    Cons

    Vacation policy isn’t as good as other SF/Bay Area tech companies.
