    Pros

    Great colleagues. Mission and purpose fueled work. Great offices. Great benefits. Work on an iconic product that changed the way people communicate.

    Cons

    Can be a tricky place to navigate politics. Stealing peoples ideas and work and presenting it as your own is a common practice.

    Cons

    No overall LT strategy
    Lots of internal politics
    Got conned on salary when I had to relocate. Was told salary would be cut by 50%

    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.

    Pros

    Great business, very switched on and knows exactly what they want and where they want to go and how to get there -it really has been so lovely meeting the whole AU team - they are all so super friendly and talented in their own niche areas.

    Cons

    Nothing that i can think of so far

    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.

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

    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.

  8. "Flex!"

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

    Pros

    Flexible working
    Great working culture
    Great team members
    Great perks (free food + snacks + travel/phone/gym reimbursement)

    Cons

    No set processes but great to make a impact

    Advice to Management

    More diversity in the London office

    I have been working at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work from home policy
    Free lunch
    Very great career growth opportunities
    Supportive managers and coworkers

    Cons

    If you're looking for a small startup or large company this is not the place to join.
    However, Twitter still has a small company feel to it with the stability of a larger one and each person can make a large impact on the millions of users that user our product.
    401k Match is not that great either, but other benefits/compensation makes up for this
