    I worked at Twitter full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great, smart people Interesting technology Interesting challenges at scale

    Cons

    Constant reorgs Revolving door of senior execs (colloquially referred to as 'reorg thursdays') As senior exec roles stabilized, there was a lot of turf-grabbing

    I worked at Twitter full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Many great colleagues (and managers), and before my team (TwitterOSS) got chopped it had a mission that I cared about deeply.

    Cons

    Some weird organizational decisions that would seem like historical accidents if there weren't also frequent re-orgs that you would think could have fixed these mistakes if they had been seen as mistakes. Priorities could change rapidly and to a degree that managers couldn't always shield ICs from the repercussions.

    Advice to Management

    More stability.

    I worked at Twitter full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great culture Great University Recruiting Team with a fun internship program Serious about diversity at the workplace. Decent work life balance

    Cons

    Work life balance depends on your team Twitter is still figuring itself out as a company which can be exciting if you're looking for something like that but frustrating if you're not

    I have been working at Twitter full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Company name on the resume

    Cons

    They hire managers across the board who fail to simply understand what their teams do. They turn a blind eye to mistakes that cost the company $ if you're in the 'bro club'. A lot of politics and favoritism. They promote open communication but feedback/advice to management is not well received unless positive. Honestly, a horribly toxic environment where I experienced unfair treatment, harassment, sexism, and racism.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees outside of manager roles a stronger voice. Take employee concerns more seriously.

  7. "Twitter is a place with interesting problems and opportunity for personal growth"

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Twitter full-time

      Pros

      There are lots of interesting problems to work on and you will have the opportunity to take on as much responsibility as you want. Generally you can choose your work/life balance. I do believe Twitter is a mission driven company and if you are passionate about improving the quality of public conversation then this is the place for you.

      Cons

      Teams have autonomy, which gives you the freedom to work on what you think is important. Sometimes this results in teams duplicating work or can make cross team efforts difficult. I do think the company is getting better at coordination and focus.

      I have been working at Twitter full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      The best part of every campaign is the ability to create more opportunities to build up the community and improve the quality of business. The difference between these 0as is the opportunity to make a difference is simply a necessary step to ensure the future of our business community. And the fact is we have a amazing team that can get something done.

      Cons

      Currently the company operates through several different industries and services including technology based systems and software development. projects for new businesses are going to be difficult.

      Advice to Management

      Allow me the opportunity to see how you do things in the team and I will make it a priority to work together in the same direction.

      "Great quality of work, hard to rise far, management so-so"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Business Analyst in San Francisco, CA

        I have been working at Twitter for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Twitter has fantastic benefits and a culture that supports work life balance and quality of life. It's also a place with a huge impact and you always feel like you're working on something important.

        Cons

        The intermediate size of the company, the relatively flat management structure, and other factors mean that it's hard to rise very far. This leads to the well known high turnover rate. I don't think people leave because they're unhappy; I think people leave because they don't have the opportunity to advance any further.

        Pros

        Has good location in San Francisco and perks Salary is competitive

        Cons

        User research leadership is extremely unprofessional .The team is very cliquey. Senior leadership in research have their favorites. They exhibit all bad behavior and there is no one to coach them. Leaders do not have the experience in managing people and is very immature. The quality of research work is very low. There are other reviews earlier stating the same, wish I had read them before, if you can.. stay away from...

        Advice to Management

        Will need purging of this group and the leaders to get a better team.
