      Glu Hyderabad a.k.a LiveOps Only Studio

      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 )

      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.
