    Pros

    People are amazing and I believe in the long term vision of the company!

    Some systems and processes still need to be ironed out, but that is expected of a fast moving growing company.

    Pros

    Twitter tries really hard to be an inclusive and diverse work environment. Not there yet, but the transparency of the successes and failures is a great start.

    Cons

    Could get a higher salary

    Pros

    Smart people, flexible work environment, company with amazing values and people

    Cons

    Company is slow to hire for roles which leaves many teams without support for long periods of time. Work/Life balance is also difficult at times

    Pros

    Autonomy. Transparency. People genuinely love where they work. Plus... it's great to be part of a company when it's in a growth stage with a challenger mentality.

    Cons

    Would love to have a bit more engineering resource allocated to ad products. But honestly, I couldn't be happier with the work environment. Working at an HQ is great, but sitting in a satellite office sometimes feels disconnected despite efforts made to address that.

    Advice to Management

    There is a bit too much deification of the executives. They are great - but my preference is to have management that are not as visible as we make ours.

    I worked at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Incredible office perks (lunch, snacks, coffee/barista)
    - Team outings and events

    Cons

    - Sales Teams dictated direction of the company until Year 2 of Dorsey
    - Enthusiasm for Twitter's mission can be a bit overwhelming at times

    Advice to Management

    Let product guide direction of the company, worry less about the street, and stick to what you made your product so strong in the first place. Everything else will follow.


  9. "Lots of work to be done"
