Featured Review

Former Employee - Regional Account Manager

I worked at Glu Mobile full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

great culture, good benefits. equal opportunity workplace.

Cons

very US-centric view on commercial decisions. tends to ignore the market environment in other parts of the world.

Advice to Management

Explore alternative payment options to increase flexibility and potential market reach. Half the world is waiting to be tapped if you placed some R&D resource into developing and improving commercial... ability. Asia is not solely dependant on Google Checkout or Appstore billing. Also, bring back your licensing of big-name IPs from the movie and game industries. Gameloft and EA will always beat you at this if you only focus on internal IP.

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer II

I have been working at Blizzard Entertainment full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Overall, great company. August reputation, filled with super talented people. Known worldwide. Products are great. Strong support for employees.

Cons

Poor pay, relative to other top tier tech companies. (The "Blizzard Tax", i.e. the hit to your salary b/c you get to have the Blizzard name on your resume.) Ironically, overly focused on diversity... & inclusion. Has lost a lot of talent in the past three years.

Advice to Management

Employees need to be better paid. Not just the top performers, but everyone. California is very expensive.
