    Pros

    The current GLU leadership seems to legitimacy care about transparency and building a strong foundation based on trust and respect.

    Kontras

    GLU is a game company intent on making money more than making fun games. Though making money is understandable, even desirable - many goals place the bottom line over player satisfaction, game creativity.

    Rat an das Management

    Keep at it! Your open dialogue and transparency is vital for a healthy organization. We all want to make awesome products - let us do it and we will all win!

    Lots to learn from other studios if you can talk to them, culture open to sharing

    Poor leadership of liveops team is making people quit, all the leads quit in one year!

    Rat an das Management

    Good games are attracting people to glu Hyderabad but bad leadership is driving them away.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Glu Mobile (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    Glu has been as good as any other place to work. Environment is nice. Compensation is nice. People are friendly. My schedule is manageable. I thrive on success and as long as Glu and I are both succeeding, I am happy.

    Kontras

    My big concern is that people making fundamental decisions are not creatives and want to make informed, data supported, games. But in an industry as fast paced as mobile, that doesn't make a lot of sense. By the time you've cloned Clash of Clans, it's too late. You have to have new ideas.

    Glu also has the unique and dubious history of cloning it's OWN games, which makes zero sense to me. I remember they had two Tiny Tower clones back in the day.

    Rat an das Management

    1. Make new games quickly, but build teams slowly. In mobile, you can make a prototype with 3-4 people. A prototype team doesn't need to be bigger than that. In fact, more people with dilute the core vision. Eventually, if the game is fun, you can move it into full production.

    2. Stop cloning games. Especially your own games. Diner Dash is not a genre.

    Pros

    They paid me a reasonable amount. Benefits weren’t great but not bad.

    Kontras

    Worked on two teams. I took on a lot of work and was given glowing reviews when I had them on my first team. Mismanagement all the way up the chain made that game set up for failure and it was killed shortly after being released. This is a very common theme there. My next team wasn’t much better but now I had a few people on the team that didn’t want to help the new team members (myself included) to get up to speed on the (already largely made game) codebase. I remember the boss one crunch night commented on how our team was the best because “we make the funniest jokes and are the meanest”. After being on the team a while I was suddenly fired because “I didn’t care enough about the game”. I was given no warning or way to change my ways... even tho I was acting like most of the others on the team. The team already had really low moral since we had been crunching and the game was unstable. They claimed that I was committing lots of bad code but I had already talked to my boss about how I was being given half finished and buggy code to build off of and had one guy breaking my code (aka setup for failure). I was just the last person to work on the area and management was so poor they didn’t check anyone’s work before me (since it was the last part). I assume I was actually fired because they were short on money since my lead told me that I should stop asking why I got fired since it “is just business”. Coward. Liar.

    Rat an das Management

    Listen to your workers when they’re saying there’s problems instead of sticking your head in the sand.

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei Glu Mobile (Über 5 Jahre)

    Pros

    I've been at Glu for 5+ years, I've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Is it my dream job? No. Is it a horrible company to work for (like the angry reviews here)? Absolutely not. Glu's had some tough times with a lot of layoffs and changes but more and more I feel the company is going in the right direction and you can feel the vibe in the office. It's a much better place than a year ago but we still have ways to go.

    Kontras

    We need more rewarding. And please don't wait years to let go of B players.

    Continue listening to employees

    Ich habe in Vollzeit bei Glu Mobile gearbeitet (mehr als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    • Great office space in Hyderabad
    • Relaxed work atmosphere
    • Great place for interns / junior developers due to LiveOps only development culture
    • Great for Artists not for other roles

    Kontras

    • LiveOps only culture ( Hyderabad ).
    • Multiple Glu studios shutdown in 1 year. If a game doesn’t do well then company shuts down entire studio and it’s the norm for them. So be prepared to read “Subject : Closing XYZ Studio” from CEO every few months.
    • Hyderabad studio treated differently with less perks etc. compared to the rest of the offices ( Cost effective approach )

    Rat an das Management

    Treat all studios alike! And start making games like everyone else is doing.
