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

    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

    Cons

    • 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 )

    "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.

    Vacation policy isn’t as good as other SF/Bay Area tech companies.
