    I have been working at Glu Mobile full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good youthful culture, great work life balance, decent pay, low politics

    Cons

    Low job security, company not too averse to lay offs for cost cutting,
    not great work for developers, its only maintainence, no solid new development at all. Very less canteen / food facilities as compared to current IT standards.

    Advice to Management

    Give a sense of security to employees, don't hike salaries or give big bonuses, instead use that money to help retrain and retain redundant employees.

    Pros

    Good team, great artists.
    Love for gaming
    Excellent office space

    Cons

    Do not have full ownership of the games - it feels like it is more of offshore outsourcing than pure product development

    Don't micro manage.
