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

    Pros

    - Great team: the team I work on is like a family in many respects - team members genuinely care about each other and look out for each other, and legitimately enjoy spending time together at the office and at team events
    - Work/life balance: unlike some other places I've worked at, Glu does a good job of limiting overtime, getting people out of the office at a reasonable hour, and accommodating folks with families
    - Generous benefits: from my own experience and from other coworkers I've spoken with, compensation is typically market-competitive to above-market, with a wide range of additional benefits like free lunches and snacks, 401(k) matching, and annual performance bonuses

    Cons

    - Office location: While the office space itself is nice, it's located in a neighborhood that can be a bit sketchy at times, particularly in the evening (not a huge con, but it's a factor to consider if you're taking mass transit)

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

    Pros

    Strong Dev teams - Art, design, and tech are generally competent and good people to work with. You'll find some good mentors petering away, getting things done.

    Cons

    Core Management is clueless and out of touch. This trickles down to regional management and their outlook. This is not a company that cares about or wants to make games.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to the people actually making a product. Respect the disciplines you hired and the experience they bring, or be clear about their roles as complicit yes-men up front. Don't ask for passion and proceed to crush it.
