Twitter helps you create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.
Our company culture directly aligns with its purpose as a platform — a place for discovery, self-expression and human connection. At Twitter, we have created an environment where people are actually encouraged to bring their authentic selves and their passions to work.
Once here, our employees have a myriad of opportunities to grow new skills and deepen those they already possess. Above all, we have created a place where employees come together as empowered individuals for the strength of the collective.
As a product, Twitter brings you closer to others. As an employer, Twitter does the same. We often hear employees say, “I joined Twitter, and I joined a family.”

Every year, students and new grads have an impact on our company. Our Engineering team is aggressively hiring undergrad, masters and PhD students for full-time positions and summer internships.
“When I started, I had very little real-world experience—I’d never coded professionally before—so, I was really excited and really nervous... On my third day at work, I got to see the President of Russia... A few weeks later, Kanye West (@ kanyewest) ’dropped by’ for lunch.”
“Twitter doesn't just hire great engineers, it hires great people. It goes without saying you'll work with amazing engineers; the real joy is working with people who are hilarious, fantastically interesting, and generous with their time and teaching.

I worked at TwitterPros
Great company to work for. Perks are amazing. Challenging work. Smart people. It's a well oiled machine for a company of its size and has been working to address the *systematic* internal issues (eg developer productivity). Overall it's hard to beat.Cons
The company has been bleeding culture as the old timers leave and the hiring process is slanted towards what have been described fairly accurately as "worker bees from Google." In general, I saw my newer coworkers were smarter but less fun than the older ones.
Recently there has been a lot of turnover at the company in what is basically a systematic sweeping of house as they look for people internally who aren't up to par. This is concerning even for those above this bar, although I can understand that it may make the company stronger long-term.
Not enough upward mobility. Promotion/feedback process can be gamed.Advice to ManagementAdvice
