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.

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

    Pros

    Salary, donuts and bagels. Location in sf is near bart

    Cons

    Crazy ceo, fear driven management, top heavy management layer that is micro managing . Lack of focus, and late to the party on mobile monetization systems. Add to that a non creative workspace and constant fear of getting fired, and an expectation that you need to work 16 hour days 7 days a week to be a good employee.

    Advice to Management

    Lose demassii, his management style is not right for a games company. He is better suited to work in the government
