I have been working at Glu full-time

Pros

Glu is full of talented people that are fun to work with, and the level of talent continues to increase as many skilled professionals are joining Glu with prior mobile free-to-play experience. Company puts out great games, and is focused on deepening f2p mechanics. Exciting time to be here, as there's tons of room to innovate, and individuals are able to make a big impact.

Cons

SF office has stunning views, but layout is a bit old school. Good news is the company is moving to a cool new space in the city soon.

Advice to Management

Be aggressive, and stay focused. Glu has a great opportunity to become one of the premier mobile gaming companies in the world.

    I have been working at Glu full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management team is aggressive and makes decisions with a multi-year view. Personally have been afforded multiple opportunities to expand my role and responsibilities in my own areas of interest; not just disciplines that need support. Receive competitive compensation and benefits, which has been confirmed through recent conversations with head hunters. Encouraged by Glu's commitment to maintain tight relationships with key mobile platforms and deliver first to market technologies.

    Cons

    The fast pace and lean teams can jeopardize work-life balance. Company also has a bit of a corporate feel for a gaming company, although seems to be improving with recent hires.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on new and innovative gameplay, not just current chart toppers.

    I have been working at Glu 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.
