A great place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsWith 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.

ConsProducts 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 Senior ManagementGiving 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
