    “Our mission statement puts our users first and defines our clear purpose—to give everyone the ability to be heard, seen, and share their thoughts and experiences as they happen,” says Brian Schipper, vice president of human resources, “It is our compass when we’re building the platform and developing new products and policies. We want to empower individuals and be a force for good in the world.” http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIf1u

    7 core values statements that inspire

    What does a company stand for? What values do its employees embody? What do its products contribute to the world? Answering these questions succinctly but meaningfully is challenging but worth pursuing to the many companies that craft "core value statements" or "mission statements" to anchor every aspect of a business in a set of commonly-held beliefs and commitments.

Twitter – Why Work For Us?

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.”

“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.”

My Awesome Summer Internship at Twitter by Siddarth Chandrasekaran

“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.

    Pros

    You work with a platform that is connecting people everyday to the world, letting voices be heard, sparking revolutions and democratising the world at large. If that doesn't motivate you - chances are very few things will :)

    The culture is empowering - You are the master of what you want to create here and the company stands behind you for support.

    Leadership is very transparent and approachable. I've worked in two big global companies before and the level of transparency here is my favourite thing.

    Cons

    We're still figuring some things out so things are constantly evolving. If that's not something someone is comfortable with then I can see how that might be a problem for them.

    It was a telephonic interview, Very monotonous.
