      I have been working at Glu Mobile full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      There were sometimes good snacks and some fun people to work with.

      Cons

      Corporate greed runs deep. As an employee you will suffer the consequence of leadership actions and get laid off. Don't worry. When you are either shut down or laid off, leadership will say, "we didn't get large bonuses this year." Their words, not mine.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on original content and not just a meat grinder or rehashing tired ideas.

      Catered lunch, free snacks and drinks, company parties, decent corporate structure for benefits, PTO/vacation, etc.

      Cons

      Poor management that is disconnected from the development process and the consumer. It feels like a bunch of old men in a high tower deciding what they think mobile game users want (spoiler alert, they usually don't), deciding on unrealistic timeframes and expectations without consulting the devs and locking them into that deal by pitching it to shareholders so that there's nothing you can do but crunch to make it happen.

      Advice to Management

      Hire someone who actually understands the market so you can make products that aren't automatically doomed to fail. You've had to shut down most of the studios (including mine) and projects you've had since I've been there due to poor business sense. Consult with developers before committing to a project and pitching it to shareholders. When you undercut development time to make a project seem more attractive, you're...
