    It's challenging and they're doing amazing things, but the culture was terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company grows from a medium to large size company (it already has) you need to do something about the culture. People are acting like its still a startup and thats not going to work.

    I worked at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    *Great benefits/perks - free food/snacks, great equipment given to you on day one (brand new MacBook Pro), beautiful new office, "unlimited vacation time", comp top-notch gym memberships, yoga classes at headquarters, game room, events (movie screenings, etc)
    *Open flow of information from company leads at Local Tea Time regarding product developments and future of the company
    *Intelligent, innovative and some of the top talent in the industry
    *Unlimited/Flexible Vacation Policy

    Cons

    *Little to no training or investment in "people"
    *Lack of internal tools to progress/succeed in your role (short term) and career (long term)
    *Weak management with little to no management experience (lots of first time managers)
    *Passive agressive political environment ...Watch your back from day 1!
    *Sink or swim - new recruits are not set up for success
    *Lack of transparency within smaller teams creating a disconnect between upper management and the employees doing the day-to-day grunt work keeping the business afloat
    *Remote offices are extremely disconnected - Senior Management has not made it an initiative to build a positive culture outside of the San Francisco Headquarters
    *Slow to acknowledge and dig deep into issues affecting teams productivity and efficiecy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A very sexy company to work for from the outside, Twitter does a great job selling itself to candidates throughout the interview process but rarely follows through with promises made and expectations set in these negotiations. It's a two-way street...in order to retain the top talent they should take a hard look at the day to day overall satisfaction of each employee compared to what they expected coming into the company. Lastly, without investing in your people Twitter will slowly start falling behind competition. It is key to prioritize development and learning for each team and doing quality assurance checks on their Senior Management who are often times unexperienced first time managers. Outside of a few key players, they are lacking true leadership within each individual team - creating a culture of nasty politics and career digression.
