Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good salary compared to other companies
Sense of security
Great and friendly atmosphere
Easy approachable management
Several projects at one time. You can switch if you are bored to death with current one.
Good work/life balance
Free snacks/drinks
Clean office
Paid overtime

Cons

It is really difficult to influence on the project. Everything is decided by the head office. The main idea is: lets take what others did, "paint it red" and rename it.
Almost no career improvement for 90% of employees.
No support from company in growing as a professional.

Advice to Management

Overall good work. Give some space to your employees. They have some useful ideas too.

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

    Pros

    great culture, good benefits. equal opportunity workplace.

    Cons

    very US-centric view on commercial decisions. tends to ignore the market environment in other parts of the world.

    Advice to Management

    Explore alternative payment options to increase flexibility and potential market reach. Half the world is waiting to be tapped if you placed some R&D resource into developing and improving commercial ability. Asia is not solely dependant on Google Checkout or Appstore billing. Also, bring back your licensing of big-name IPs from the movie and game industries. Gameloft and EA will always beat you at this if you only focus on internal IP.
