    The Washington Post highlights how Twitter promotes family and workplace equality by encouraging men to take its 10-week paid paternity leave.

    How do you erase the taboo of paternity leave? These companies have an idea.

    In early May, a group of about 20 Twitter employees gathered in a conference room at the company's New York offices to swap stories about becoming new parents. They shared strategies for prepping to go out on leave for nearly three months. They lamented their loss of sleep.

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.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Twitter.

    Interview

    Was contacted via LinkedIn by an in-house recruiter at Twitter. He asked me for available times to talk; when I responded, rather than scheduling a call he emailed me an NDA and an exercise to fill out. The exercise was legal hypos, which I completed and returned. I never heard back from the recruiter, even after following up.
