I have been working at Twitter full-time

Pros

Many teams are good and twitter-20 is true (a.k.a great food, you gain 20 pounds).

Cons

Twitter was previously great place to work.
Unlike to bigger companies like Google, there could be better opportunities but the management has FAILED to scale the organization well.
Managers have no interest in setting up the new hires for success, they are focused on getting short term results. Thus leading to many cases of hire and fire.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean up the mid tier management

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

    Pros

    Close to nothing, the location, the people, the product, the company and the managers are all awful. The food was good.

    Cons

    Well, everything - I can think of too many things that are wrong with this company to list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the BS and get a handle of your company. The goal of max employees for managers is junk and you know it. This has caused so much middle management BS for employees to get anything done

    I have been working at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    I like the actual platform, and some of my coworkers are delightful.

    Cons

    Twitter is bro-heavy from the top down. Women have very little opportunity for advancement. Once, someone asked why there weren't more women in sales leadership positions and someone got up and talked about how great the women in sales were. Two weeks later, 5 people were promoted in sales. Guess how many women? ZERO. I have seen bosses with admins humiliate their admins in meetings (admins being mostly women, this is a huge red flag), and they definitely are not shown respect. "The fish stinks from the head," as they say. In this case, it is definitely true.
