    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Twitch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Twitch has some great perks. I think we're actually a little spoiled. Good food, good benefits, chill work hours. Engineers have it the best here. Everyone else, not so much.

    Cons

    Data scientists (not analysts) have it the worst here. The top data scientist in the company was grandfathered into leadership by the Amazon acquisition. He has never worked anywhere else. His deputy is also an academic, also with no prior work or management experience. And it shows. Churn for data scientists is high, because we're stuck doing fundamental work like monthly reporting, instead of building models and shipping code. There is no career path to speak of, so you spend most of your time treading water. In fact, the two data science managers we had were demoted, so career growth is actually negative. If you have an offer from Twitch, you can definitely get an offer somewhere else that takes data science seriously.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Twitch (Taipei (Taiwan)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewers are very kind. They care about my professional and passion both and they have passion in their job(this is very important to me). It’s a very good experience for me.
