Pros

With over 120,000,000 *active* users, BitTorrent offers a great opportunity to make a big difference. The company is extremely generous with Salary, bonuses, resources, perks and shwag. The atmosphere is casual and full of interesting people.

Cons

Products are completely design-driven with little regard for technical complexity or platform UI conventions. Shipped products often receive little support. Some managers have very poor leadership skills though others are excellent. Choose your boss carefully and try to hang onto the good ones.

Advice to Management

Giving designers and developers equal control of designs will foster greater cooperation and help assure more positive product receptions in the market. Try to avoid over-designing products. Instead, start simple and then grow or eliminate products based on metrics and feedback in order to publish earlier and reduce the expense of extensive rework or product failures.

    Pros

    Lots of smart people, fun coworkers, and a great atmosphere. Interesting challenges and lots of opportunities to work on things that very few people have done before.

    Cons

    The pay was not great, though it was adequate. Projects would get cancelled and reinstated, and sometimes a lot of work would happen for things that never saw the light of day.

    Advice to Management

    Current management seems to be much better than old management, and they know what they're doing. Basically, they need to hire great people, incentivize them well, and then get out of their way.


  2. Great products that no will pay to use.
