    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.

    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.

    I have been working at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    Working on impactful projects everyday. Building a world-class team and company. Flexibility to work from home 1 or 2 days when needed.

    Great parental leave for birthing, non-birthing or adoptive parents at 20 weeks fully paid! Non-accrued PTO, take time off when you need with pre-approval.

    Cons

    Things change quickly and often, which keeps you on your toes and it is never boring. If you're looking for something static, this isn't a place for you.
