I have been working at Glu Mobile full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Top quality studio team plus all the right monetization experts to make Glu the leader in mobile gaming. The exec team has the best relationships with each of the platforms. The location within San Francisco is tops as close to all public trans.

Cons

If you are looking for a job to coast, then look elsewhere. Those who perform are definately rewarded and those who do not are let go.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! By rewarding the performers and letting go of the underperformers, you have created a culture where one is judge on performance.

    I have been working at Glu Mobile full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Industry leader. SF location great. Company knows how to pivot during difficult times. New executive team has true industry leading expertise and runs circles around prior folks.

    Cons

    Pivoting during difficult times can be distracting for teams. Had inefficient studios in Brazil and Kirkland who couldn't learn how to make games that were stand alone profitable. Brazil had to be shut down and Kirkland seriously reduced to cross the chasm.

    Advice to Management

    Have all hands meetings with multi locations present. Explain to teams the need for stand alone studios needing to be stand alone self sufficient. Keep improving the talent hiring.
