    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.

    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.

    Nothing that i can think of so far

    I have been working at Twitter full-time for 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.

    I worked at Twitter full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Perks. Everything you would expect from a Tech company. Free "stuff" and inviting environment. It's comfortable to work there and at times, even exciting.

    Cons

    Its had to reinvent itself a few times. Stock cant seem to find a groove. Company lacks innovation and still stuck with the same problems around abuse. HR is a complete mess with tons of attrition and several leaders coming in and reinventing the wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the product. Do something big. Its more of the same each year.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Twitter full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great food and office location in downtown San Francisco. Flexibility to WFH.

    Cons

    The marketing department is a mess. Senior management is often bickering amongst themselves and all the marketing teams are at odds. There is no top-down communication from the CMO or encouragement to work together as a whole team on company-wide initiatives. Everyone operates in silos. Getting work completed here is next to near impossible because everyone talks over each other and tries to kill each other's projects.

    Advice to Management

    Be present. Show yourself. Speak to the entire team as a unit. Stop promoting legacy dinosaurs. Encourage people to work together and remove leadership if they're not willing to cooperate with other marketing teams to get work done. Hold people accountable to deadlines and marketing budgets!
