Interviewing for a security assurance analyst position with Twilio and some of the stuff I’ve been reading makes me nervous. Any Twilio people here that can speak to overall company culture and work/life balance?

Been at twilio for less than a year but it's the best place I've ever worked. Culture is great though there are issues due to massive employee growth over the last few years but overall it's great. Security is of utmost importance in this space so I'd imagine there may be some pressure but I'd imagine less than at a smaller company. Everyone I've met here has been super helpful all while being remote.

The pace is fast and the bar is high. That said, there is a big emphasis on balance. Everyone respects your life outside of work and we have small things like no-meeting Fridays.

If you’re having trouble or second thoughts - reach out to the recruiter you’re working with when I went through the process they helped me out and set me up with other people (outside of the process) to talk to.

Just an example: I left mid day during a huge project to go to my kid’s parent teacher conference. No questions asked and was told to have a good weekend.

You will be busy, but when you need focus time or time away to take care of life - you’ll have the support.

At the end of the day I think you should trust the feeling you’re getting from the interview process. I’m connected with a few people on LinkedIn who work there and seem to really enjoy it. I’m sure experience varies from person to person but it’s definitely possible to have a positive experience.

I think that’s a good perspective. I’m just going to do my best to be thoughtful with my questions and get the answers I need to make a good decision.

Haven't heard anything too terrible. Just that it can be a bit fast paced over there thats all.

I have a connection that only worked there for 9 months (quit two weeks ago) - just said the company culture wasn’t a good fit (I know that’s vague)

I think Twilio is one of those company cultures in which a person is either going to thrive or be miserable. I would ask questions and try to get a sense of it during the interviews.

It's a growing company so there will be pressure. But I am sure there will be support when needed. Did you end up taking the offer?

Advice needed: I have been trying to get into consulting for a year now and finally had a screen call at a Big4 this week. As well, I am about to get a great offer (comp, position, growth potential) from a small healthcare company. I need a job now as my UI is almost over and I can’t reject an offer for a screening call. However, my dream is to be a consultant and I want the position if it is offered. As well, someone wonderful pulled strings for me to get the interview at the Big4. (cont.)

I’ve been an insurance defense attorney for 16 years and I can’t do it any longer. Really, the issue is that I can’t do litigation any longer. I’m having difficulty identifying roles where the skills transfer. I’ve had a number of interviews, and the response is always you seem great, but we hired someone who already has experience in this area (in house employment, higher ed, etc.). Is there any hope for change? Ideas? I’m fine with relocating, but I’m not really interested in big cities.
