Promising Start - Questionable Future

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

Pros

Food, Coworkers, Innovative atmosphere, work-life balance, perks at workplace

Cons

Increasingly puzzling decisions by Sr. Execs. Such as promoting individuals to Director or higher level even though experience does not support. More as reward for being part of company from beginning than based on good, practical, business sense / decisions. Also, comany does not seem to be working on biggest problem for future of company which is growing user base by making Twitter more appealing to broader user base - seems more interested in becoming part of mainstream media

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in Sr. Management with experience in the areas you wish to strengthen. Do not promote inexperienced individuals as nothing more than a reward for being with company longer than newer hires (even though they are better suited). Company needs to begin acting like a global corporation, not a start up any more. Focus first on why more people don't use Twitter.

Doesn't Recommend

    Great company

    Pros

    Great culture, lots of people with similar goals and interests, tools I need to do my job. Often find myself working for the fun of it rather than to keep management happy. Lots of room to move up here.

    Cons

    Too many people here expecting the world to bend to their whim. Twentitled being a commonly used word. Often working with so many smart people you can get issues with people not being willing to bend because they believe they are right. Often slow to fire problem employees.

    Starting to see hire and fire culture

    Current Employee - Software Engineer  in  San Francisco, CA
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

    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
