    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.

    "Toxic Teams and They'll Work You to Death"

    1.0
    Former Employee - Producer 
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Glu Mobile full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    some people are nice but the nice people leave asap.

    Cons

    This was the worst job I ever had in my life. They'll work you 60 to 70 hours a week. Teams are cliquey. If they don't like you, they'll kick you out of the company. Company keeps saying "we're a family" so you don't speak out against "the family." Think twice before working here. Pay is really low too.
