Working at Twitter was an opportunity to be part of an organization that values innovation and encourages employees to think outside the box. The constant push to improve products and services was... inspiring. Twitter takes diversity and inclusion seriously. The company's commitment to fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment is evident in its policies and initiatives. I had the privilege of working with incredibly talented and passionate colleagues who were dedicated to their roles and always eager to collaborate on projects. Twitter's reach and impact on the world are undeniable. It's gratifying to work for a platform that connects people and enables conversations on a global scale. The fast-paced nature of the tech industry means there is always something new to learn. Twitter provided ample opportunities for professional growth and development.
While the fast-paced environment can be invigorating, it can also be overwhelming at times. Keeping up with the rapid changes and demands of the industry can be challenging. Maintaining a healthy... work-life balance can be a struggle, especially during crunch times and product launches. It's essential to set clear boundaries and prioritize self-care. Twitter sets high expectations for its employees, which can be both motivating and demanding. Meeting these expectations requires dedication and commitment. The tech industry is highly competitive, and staying ahead of the curve requires constant effort. This can sometimes lead to stress and a sense of urgency. The transition to remote work brought about by external factors had its share of challenges, including communication hurdles and feelings of isolation. However, Twitter made efforts to mitigate these issues.
Great experience through my interviews - my recruiter and coordinator prepared me for every step of the process and answered my questions as they came up! Interview team asked me great questions and... really wanted to get to know me as a person . In the time leading up to my first day, the People team and my manager helped me get prepared for my first day and also answered any questions that I had, the experience couldn't have been better! I've been at Bitly for a few months now and I absolutely love it here. The people I get to work with are wonderful and love to collaborate. I am very supported by my manager and given the opportunity to grow and challenge myself on a daily basis. Our leadership team is AMAZING, genuinely cares about overall well-being and is always easy to communicate with whenever it's needed. So very happy to be here!
We're still growing! Not really a "Con", but it's good to know!
