    Pros

    Flexible hours, Fun exciting projects that bring you close to the customers, unlimited PTO and alot of holidays off.

    Cons

    bringing out a new project to product take longer than should at times. Not sure if this is just due to the process, or also due to COVID and everyone being remote.

    Good work life balance but leadership leaves a lot to be desired

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, good people at the company. Typical tech perks - unlimited PTO, good benefits

    Cons

    Poor leadership at a team and executive level, lots of internal shakeup. Company's north star feels like a moving target, which forces good people to feel stagnant at the company. Lack of transparency on how to move up.

    A great company to work for

    Pros

    Twitch isn't as segregated as many large companies are, so we're allowed to work on just about whatever project we want; project work is even encouraged (so long as we're able to also maintain our area of responsibility). There is a huge political culture at Twitch, but that's largely avoidable if you try hard enough (I don't like to talk religion or politics at work). At least my managers (chain of command) seem to care about my success and lead from the front - they don't micromanage. When goals are stated, they work to help me achieve said goals.

    Cons

    This company was founded in San Francisco and shares the political ideology of those who live there. Any politics contrary to that is heavily frowned upon. (But one can, in large part, avoid politics altogether if you try hard enough.) Also, being owned by Amazon, many Amazon policies are being adopted which is making Twitch loose the "small company" feel.
