    Lots of internal politics

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance, career development being prioritised, culture not always present but a focus / priority

    Cons

    International markets are missing culture and feeling part of a world class tech company. Benefits the U.S. team have don't apply to int'l employees. Markets where twitter is not already big feel de-prioritised and may be lacking in resource to do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more inclusive of your international markets, don't allow them to feel like third class citizens, give them benefits that are similar/equal to HQ. Otherwise the pull of working for a local brand or a competitor is strong.

    I have been working at Twitter full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff - I get to work with some of the most intelligent, interesting people I've ever met everyday
    Real passion for content and media.
    The product evolves constantly. There's always something new to discuss with partners/clients.

    Cons

    Culture of transparency can lead to too much communication - especially over email.
    US centric company (but it's getting better)
    Recruitment process is slow and frustrating with little feedback throughout. Not the the best first impression.

    Advice to Management

    Recruitment is a pain-point. Slow with little transparency. Need to be fixed for both internal and external candidates.

    Pros

    Career development at Twitter has become even more of a focus.
    Employees hear frequently from senior management / execs, and conversation is encouraged from all levels of the business. No good idea is ignored.
    Great to see DickC chip in on an idea circulated, and get involved in the nitty gritty.
    Salary is good. Work life balance even better.

    Cons

    Can be a little 'disorganised' and day-to-day processes aren't always in place, where the Sales team needs guidance.

    Pros

    If you get into the right org with the right manager it can be a great place to grow your career. Motivating to work for a company with incredible brand recognition and global impact.

    Cons

    Your experience is highly dependent on your org and manager. Certain orgs are super political with leadership jockeying for more control, ownership viability. Things change quickly so one minute a team is the silver bullet for growth and the next it's dissolved.

    Advice to Management

    Need a full time CEO and strong COO d

    Pros

    Great engineering culture - regular hackweeks, every engineer's voice is heard.

    Cons

    Lack of respect for managers.
    Talented engineers who feel entitled, but lack wisdom and experience.
    Lack of product vision. Twitter continues to be a very unintuitive product that is difficult to understand and use for many people.
