Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    An Excellent Place to Work

    Jun 21, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Unlike many other game companies in the Bay Area, Glu Mobile considers long-term growth in its talent. This is a place that understands that workers can easily move to a big tech company with their same skill set, and, as such, has competitive compensation. Their benefits are excellent, and their offices are centrally located in downtown San Francisco.

    Cons

    With their recent acquisition by EA, it's unclear how the company is going to be structured in a few years.

    Great company culture and beautiful office

    Cons

    Open office might not be what people are looking for/comfortable working in. I didn’t mind the noise (nothing a pair of earphones can’t help), but an open office space may be an issue to some people.

    Great Culture, People Focused

    Pros

    Really great team culture, very inclusive environment, and good benefits. There's good leadership in place with the company in terms of listening to feedback and communicating the direction that everyone is heading. Good opportunities for career growth as well.

    Cons

    The nature of the mobile games industry in general can be very unstable in terms of a game's performance and the ability to support larger studio teams that rely on that success. Most game studios are subject to this though so it's not limited to Glu in particular.

    Successful Company, Good Perks, Very Cliquey

    Oct 27, 2020 - Senior Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Glu is in a comfortable spot, with several successful games under its belt. There are some nice perks and a comfortable working environment. Each game team operates very independently and has it's own culture, so your experience can vary. The game teams have been known to be very close, many lasting friendships have been formed, and many say the close culture at Glu is unlike anywhere else they have worked.

    Cons

    The culture is a pro for some, but definitely a con for others. Sometimes teams have been known to be very cliquey. If you think you're just going to do your work and not try to be anyone's friend, you might have some major problems. I've seen things that felt right out of the movie Mean Girls. Whenever I hear anyone say 'We're a family here!' I cringe.
