Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Glu full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

This applies to the now defunct London offices:

-Amazing office, great perks of a pool table, free soft drinks, arcade machine
-Great team spirit from the development staff

Cons

-Terrible mismanagement at senior levels
-Very much behind the curve on innovation. Missed the boat on Facebook and Smartphone platforms despite numerous entreaties from staff.
-Badly paid
-No expectation management, were frequently told the company was doing well before another round of inevitable layoffs
-Very questionable hiring around some lead staff, who lacked basic competencies and appeared to have lied their way into senior positions.

Advice to Management

Take a good, hard look at where you are in this industry and learn from more successful companies. Listen to your staff!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    If you like the mobile gaming industry this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Glu I think is a company that had better days. Many things in Europe are based in London. Extremely inefficient for many things. Eg: You need ink for the printer in the Madrid office? You´ll have to call London and they send it from there.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify to other products.
