    Great collaterals and marketing

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Twitter has been an amazing experience so far. A lot of places put mottos up on their wall but don't back it up but Twitter is a place that most people truly #LoveWhereYouWork. It's a very open environment where they give you the best chance to succeed and people work together to get the job done. And the perks (especially the gourmet breakfast and lunch and snacks) can't be beat. Plus the Maternity/Paternity policy is amazing

    Cons

    Like most jobs in sales, Twitter is a place that continues to moves the goalposts further the better you do and the forecasting process isn't one that allows you to be aggressive and still make a lot of money. Like most companies, there could always be more resources. Other than that, my only con is a lot of internal meetings, forms, Google Docs, Salesforce requirements, etc. They work us hard here and the work/life balance depends on what team/book you're on but I can't say that it's worse here than anyplace else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep this momentum going! This is a really good team and good environment and if you can keep the talent and continue to grow the team, this business should take off.

    Pros

    - Great CEO
    - Open & collaborative
    - Endless opportunities to move and grow in your career
    - Compensation & Benefits
    - The free food is INCREDIBLE

    Cons

    401K match is on the lower end

    Advice to Management

    Twitter is a GREAT place to be. Continue to focus on ways for individuals to grow their careers with the company. Consider a richer 401K match.

    Pros

    -Collegial, friendly
    -Great perks, great place to work for new parents
    -Relevant brand

    Cons

    -Lack of clear expectations and accountability leads to a political culture that favors those who operate like the majority
    -Constant leadership turnover stifles progress (always resetting based on new leader agenda)
    -Senior most leadership missing business/operating skill

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the employees and then the employees will take care of the users.
