    I worked at Twitter full-time for more than a year

    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.

    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 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.

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

    Pros

    In general, there seems to be a strong company-wide sense of inclusion and empathy, which really makes Twitter stand out. People are very passionate about the role that Twitter has in society, and while there is constantly a lot of public backlash towards the leadership around critical decisions, internally, I think that there is a lot of trust in the expertise and intentions of other teams. As an engineer, I feel empowered to work on projects that I think are valuable and interesting without feeling entangled in internal politics. Twitter was one of the first companies to really devote themselves to WFH, and the transition was essentially seamless, since Twitter was already shifting towards remote work. In addition, there are "Flexible Work" opportunities, where employees can request to temporarily or permanently work out of approved locations, which is quite amazing.

    Cons

    There are frequent re-organizations (every 4-6 months?), and while you learn to roll with the punches, it makes it difficult to plan out longer term projects, since staffing & priorities end up changing. You end up having a handful of half-baked projects that die after one or two iterations.

    Cons

    Still quite San Francisco focused but hopeful that changes as more move to remote work
