Content Creator.
Content Creator (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJuly 1, 2018
While I did not directly work for Twitch, I was a content creator for the website. In order for one's channel to be a success, one had to always stay on top of current trends and have the most up to date hardware and software.

The Grind
Twitch Affiliate (Current Employee) –  Easley, SCJune 28, 2018
As a twitch broadcaster you have to keep up on all you can and all you have learned. If you stop for a breather or take a week off you lose so much momentum. Your success at this job depends on your dedication and commitment to your product. You get slack; you lose traction. Always in the public eye, always looking to up your game. Very competitive but supportive community... for the most part.

Twitch: lucrative but mismanaged
Entertainer (Current Employee) –  Silicon Valley, CAMay 22, 2018
Though Twitch is a booming and lucrative company, the upper management lacks clear, unified vision for the company's future. The site's interaction with the user is one of the best in the tech industry at the moment, but the meta-goal of the company as the leader of e-sports broadcasting is unfortunately failing. This has put stress on employees of all levels, as the company continues to take it's desired place as an official sports channel, in defiance of its roots as a simple hosting site for professional gamers.
Pros
lucrative, popular, high job security and futures security
Cons
lack of strong leadership and branding

Its fun but fruitless
Variety Broadcaster of PC Games (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMay 3, 2018
The people who are at the top get advertised by Twitch and make sure they stay on top, and the little guy has no chance to reach that level. You can put 5 years into Twitch being the best fun and entertaining broadcaster you can be but unless you have friends in the right places your not going to make it to the big leagues.
Pros
You can make your own schedule
Cons
Low chance of getting anywhere

Self-hours and very flexible, able to relax and give others an enjoyable experience, also very easy to utilize. I was also able to edit for others and understood a lot about customer experience. I am capable of setting a very set schedule for myself and have learned how to handle relationships with others.

Great - As a Hobbie
Streamer (Current Employee) –  HomeMarch 22, 2018
If you can make it full time on Twitch it's not rare, nor impossible but it is an incredible amount of work. You run the show - literally! You need the technical know how, the creativity, the customer service skill, the game/commentary/vlogging skills and so much more to pray for a $1 tip. It's a long haul to find success but extremely gratifying if it's what you love to do.
Pros
Free Schedule, Creativity, Follow your passion
Cons
Low Pay, Hard Work

Good people helping other people
Twitch streamer (Former Employee) –  Nolanville, TXMarch 16, 2018

Pros
Content creation that feels fulfilling
Cons
No job security

Great side job
Streamer (Current Employee) –  Home BasedFebruary 14, 2018
I picked up streaming in 2012 on Twitch and fell in love.It's an amazing experience and you meet great people. It's basically self employment and your growth potential is only limited by the work you put in.
Pros
The sky is the limit.
Cons
Not meant as a career, just a fun thing to do

Do NOT work in the Developer Success division
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CADecember 21, 2017
On the surface, Twitch appears to be a mecca for talented people who love video games and streaming communities. Unfortunately, after you begin your work there, you'll realize that most of the employees have no experience, no interest, and are merely trying to use their coworkers to get ahead. No one is trustworthy. Everyone is selfish.

The managers I had in Developer Success were awful. Truly the worst I've ever known. They are text-book examples of "poor management". Many of them don't play video games, don't participate in the Twitch community, or know anything about game developers/development.

The most enjoyable part of the job was events where you get to engage with external fans.

The hardest part of the job was realizing that people are manipulative, self-absorbed blow-hards.
Pros
free Twitch swag (if you care), free lunches, unlimited time off (which you'll likely never get to use)
Cons
no work/life balance, dishonesty, poor management, terrible HR, no culture of collaboration, no teamwork

Awesome place to work
Customer Relations (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 20, 2017
Twitch is a fantastic company, built around an awesome industry. Great benefits, pay is comparable to other companies for the same work, and the benefits are good.

The company culture is laid back but focused.

I love my job. I am able to hangout and get paid to play video games online. It is stressful off camera since I am my own business but I never want to quit.

Difficult and rewarding
Talk Show Entertainer (Current Employee) –  Eau Claire, WIJuly 7, 2017
As a contracted entertainer through Twitch it is one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs I have had the pleasure of having. You must be a very self driven individual to succeed. Simply playing video games is all but a subset of what this job entails day in and day out. You must spend countless hours outside the normal shift in order to make it. Despite all the hardships and downsides I wouldn't trade it for the world.

A fun and incredible working environment tailored to your schedule
INTERNSHIP (Former Employee) –  Tiffin, OHMay 10, 2017
The typical day at work is usually a carefree and inviting experience taking to many different people from all over the globe, sharing and connecting with different interests and experiences, and providing insight on gaming, news, and community. You learn that there is another world where you can make a living doing something you love, whether it is gaming, making music, creating arts and crafts or many other things. You also learn communication with fellow individuals who share your common interests. Finally, you learn to manage and run a channel that can attract and engage viewers in on your content. The culture is very free but has its rules and regulations that allow content creators to have certain freedoms and liberties without violating why the company was started. The hardest part of working with Twitch is finding success with your channel. Many viewers have their favorite games, content, and streamers and it is hard to break through and become the next Twitch sensation. But that is what makes the job so enjoyable is to find the thing that works for the individual is finding what works out and cultivating a community that you can be proud of and that Twitch finds appealing to advertise.
Pros
Centered around your schedule, freedom to stream whatever you and that is gaming related or creative, connecting with others
Cons
Hard to get big, "toxic" individuals, slow downs/no progression in views/followers

Partnered Twitch and Discord Internet Personality (Current Employee) –  Denver, COMay 9, 2017
I'm a full time caster, which I love to do. As a 10-99 employee there isn't a lot of support from Twitch itself. Being partnered doesn't mean you're an actual employee.
