The best place I have ever worked.Mar 15, 2014 - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The people are just the best. Amazing culture. Always learning something new at Twitter University. Team meetings on the roof are the best, great teamwork and a lot of smart people. I love how the 10 core values drive the company to always be better.
Instead of having Hackweek once per quarter, we will have it just once every two quarter.

- Iconic tech company that everyone has heard of - Friendly colleagues - Great culture for the most part - Very relaxed; great work-life balance - Nice offices with the usual free food and snacks - Good managers for the most part, but I got lucky
- The culture is maybe too relaxed. There are some very good people at Twitter, but also a lot who are just sitting around collecting paychecks. Was impossible to fire anyone even when they're severely underperforming. - Not very performance oriented, though they're trying to change this. Promotions were mostly based on tenure. - Disorganized, with silos and no clear direction or urgency, and quite risk averse. As a result of this and the other cons I listed above, Twitter struggles to ship. - Kind of high-schoolish. Thankfully I never experienced any beer pong type stuff, but the company seems to celebrate a certain personality type (bombastic and extroverted) regardless of how good their work is. After seeing the same people on stage at company events over and over again, I concluded I was unlikely ever able to rise up to a leadership position here. - Leadership (staff and director level and up) needs to be more diverse. - Lots of splashy and boozy offsites, events, retreats, quarterly planning sessions, but not enough doing. - Of course everything I wrote above is subject to change-- for better or worse-- with Elon in charge
