considering being referred to a couple roles at twitter and maybe square although it wasn’t previously on my radar
- how motivated do you feel at work? do you believe in the products long term?
- mentorship opportunities?
- how is product design / UX design seen at the firm? is it valued on development teams

    Life is great. But I think it all depends on your team and manager. But overall, you’re working on pretty cool products and if you actually use Twitter, then you might find the work interesting. Celebrities are always in the office, free breakfast and lunch, unlimited vacation, and flexible WFH programs, etc.

    Not sure about design, you would need to meet the team/em to get a sense of that. Company is doing well and moral and collaborations are strong. Best option if you're in SF in my opinion (obviously I guess).

    • How’s the promo process and growth for eng in general?

      Promotions are based on features and shiny things, if your in client. Get no love for running the business. Also seems based on popularity

      RTB improvements get there. I had a good amount of that in my promo packet

    At Square it feels like there is decent work life balance with tons of perks. People are incredibly nice and cooperative, the interview process itself looks for these traits.

    For your specific question
    - I am incredibly motivated at work. I enjoy the morals of this company and genuinely feels like we are trying to empower people.
    - mentorship from my experience seems pretty good. Most people who have been here for a while have seen a lot
    - product design/ UX teams are valued and they share their designs with everyone. It’s really nice to see things people are making and how they are looking

      Which org are you in? Having almost 0 mentorship has been the most disappointing thing about joining for me.
