What people are saying about X

Currently work at Twitter as a PM and not what I was expecting (limited scope, lack of vision/roadmap). I’ve only been here 2 months and just got an offer from Google for a team I’m really interested in. How bad is it to leave after 60 days? Any thoughts on Product roles at Twitter vs Google?

Any Peloton folks affected by the layoffs, feel free to check out the Twitter career page and DM me for a referral if you find an opportunity you’re a good fit for. I was let go from a different company last year and know exactly what you’re feeling. I’d love to help if I can! Twitter Peloton

As an ex consultant, what’s your strategy to climb the big-tech ladder as quickly as possible and reach a VP role in 10-15 years time? Ex MBB, just started at a big tech company (no-FAANG but super strong brand and hyper-growing) in a strategy & planning role. Work is interesting, salary is good for now, WLB is great, but I see billions of levels above my role.. Google Facebook (Meta) Twitter LinkedIn TikTok Snap Inc.

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

Amazing culture and people. Really enjoyed my time there growing the advertising business and early career sales team.

Review is a bit late (worked here while Twitter was public), but I really enjoyed the work and impact I had while I was here. Lots of opportunities to network and grow your skillset.
Should have remain public and pushed through.
