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

    Pros

    HR, User Experience, IT, and other central groups were always proactively involved in the success of the studios. I interacted with many creative teams across several development groups at Glu. I was especially impressed by our collaborations with Glu Hyderabad and with Glu's User Experience Group. Glu maintains ownership and stewardship of several solid franchises. These franchises continue to do well in the market, and that's a testament to the professionalism and skill of those development teams.

    Cons

    Corporate strategy changed 5 times in the 1.5 years that I was with Glu. Change is not equivalent to leadership, unfortunately. User Acquisition strategy remains firmly in a Mobile 1.0 mindset. Brain Trust reviews (a Pixar approach to in-house evaluation) do not scale well to mobile development. I saw significant pettiness when projects were "peer-reviewed" across studios. This includes the responses I saw from our own studio when we reviewed games developed by other teams. None of that was healthy. We did not have enough mobile game players among the mobile game makers. Therefore, there was a limited real understanding of the market direction and our audience's expectations. I experienced a general unwillingness of upper and executive management to execute on tough personnel decisions until it was too late.

    We appreciate your feedback! Employee, even ex-employee feedback is a core priority of the leadership team at Glu. I am glad to hear that you have had a positive experience with some of the teams. We’re always going to be changing, that’s probably the one thing that won’t change. However, I am confident that we have now settled on a long-term strategy of supporting creative teams to build growth games in highly creative environments. And we will certainly get better at how we communicate internally and externally at Glu. I really appreciated the thoughtfulness of this feedback and please know that we are striving to better in all these areas. - Nick
