Featured Review

Former Employee - QA Analyst

I worked at Glu Mobile full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good people who help you get through the day. Some solid friendships. Fun events and work gaming leagues.

Cons

The pay for QA was below the poverty line. QA were treated in unacceptable ways for years. Management continually handled employee issues in terrible ways. Immense amounts of overtime, sometimes with... mere minutes of notice. Depression, poverty, and hopelessness was the general tone of the QA team.

Advice to Management

Pay QA with a salary instead of hourly, and pay them the same as all the other departments.

Programmer

I worked at NEXON

Pros

Great work environment. People are great. You get to meet many talented individuals. Profit sharing options which motivates you to increase your performance at work. Employees get to express... their ideas freely without any fear of being ridiculed or rejected because every ideas are great even though some of them might not be suitable for the company. Every developer will get a chance to attend the developer conference every year which is great. Great health benefits. Management is cooperative and supportive. Work on a small productive team. The office is nice and comfortable. Free coffees and teas. Access to the gym.

Cons

The job compensation is well on average within the industry. Because the number of people is small, there are fewer chances to build your network or to meet new people. Sometimes during the crunch... time or before delivery you will have to do some overtime work without any overtime pay. They do not offer any stock options because it is a private company. There are no retirement saving plans. There are no foods or snacks provided. There are no educational or self enhancement programs to support you in career advancement. The bonus and benefits given is below average within the industry.

Advice to Management

They are really great because they listen to what the developers have to say and more importantly they actually do believe in what they say.
