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.

    I have been working at Twitter full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    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 Management

    Clean up the mid tier management
