    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 )
