    I have been working at Twitch full-time

    Pros

    I'm giving 5 stars because I do think Twitch is a great place to work.

    Most of the Glassdoor reviews are polarized, either Twitch rules or Twitch sucks. I'm not sure how helpful that is so here are two observations~
    1. It's a product-driven company. CEO is a former engineer turned product manager. If you work in engineering, UX, or any function that directly contributes to product, you're highly valued. If you're in partnerships, customer support, marketing, or any other function you'll have a harder time getting things done.
    2. Engineering quality varies massively by team. Some managers are running a tight ship and others just let their engineers do whatever they want. Seattle is corporate, Irvine is the army, and San Francisco is wild west.

    If you're thinking of joining, great, if you like the team you'll be working with Twitch won't let you down.

    Cons

    Enough said, read the section before.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Twitch (Melbourne) in September 2015.

    Interview

    After response from Twitch, the HR people were very open and understanding, and Skype interviews went well. Long delays with follow up interviews with people from other departments. Entire process before they informed me they were going with someone else took five months.

    While a lengthy process, apart from the delays everything from Twitch was very professional and very friendly and open.
