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.2

You'll learn how to operate in a large corporate environment with a lot of things unique to the tech sector, like daily stand-ups, SCRUM, etc.
Just like tech sector jobs, it's a little confusing to understand what you're doing and who you're reporting too, but... it's pretty bad here. I never knew who to ask or who to go to for advice.
