      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.

      An Excellent Place to Work

      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.

      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.
