Still young and scrappy start up feeling but with strong revenues to back it up which make for an amazing culture. At Twitter, you will be challenged and work hard, but for that you will be well compensated, well fed (3 paid gourmet meals/day), and smile more than frown. Tons of perks and stock given to all employees. 5 months of paid Maternity/Paternity!
Only con is that by joining Twitter, you have to dispel the garbage the media throws out about our future because the stock is down. If you join, you believe in the product and will be a part of it sustaining in a competitive market. Nothing stays at the top forever and you can't tear down a kingdom that easily.1

Twitter is a very pleasant, friendly place to work. The culture is open and accepting and very comfortably diverse. There seems to be little conflict. The engineers and scientists are top-notch, you can be sure you'll be working with smart people.
Management is disorganized. There are a number of ways that various parts of the company don't talk to each other very well. One consequence is that if you get stuck on the downhill side of a management personality conflict that can be pretty hard to resolve. Personally I haven't been affected by this, though.

Twitter obviously has a lot of things going for it as a growing tech company delivering a service. They also have recently focused more on their culture and people strategy which is a good sign.
Like with any young companies, Twitter has its struggles. From a business side, emphasis is on innovation and generating new channels of revenue - an uphill battle for sure. More salient though is the company culture challenge which has recently been in the spotlight (for not such great reasons) but that has been a focus in the background for awhile now. The main challenge seems to be rooted in senior leaders and tenured folks letting go of control and allowing those hired to do the work that needs to be done - this is sometimes called being overly democratic.1

- Collaborative and transparent culture - Awesome, smart, and open minded people that really care about the company and each other - Lots of opportunity to influence change, advance and build your own career path - Favors promoting from within
- Internal tools and processes can be lacking or confusing; Somewhat expected given the rapid growth the company has experienced in such a short period of time - Criteria for promotion is ambiguous - New hire process is still a work in progress

The people and culture built from the company values are hands down the best I have experienced in my career. For my team specifically, the leaders are down to earth, genuinely cares and lead by example. Earning a place here has changed the trajectory of my career massively and opened my eyes to have bigger and better dreams.
For a creative, there are some limitations in the product innovation side of things, that could be frustrating at times if you are looking for more creative freedom in your work.1

Great team members who are smart and willing to work hard. The work culture is very inviting and positive.
Like many up and coming companies, Twitter is trying to figure out its potential. It may take some time and reorgs happen quite often. Many employees also seem entitled, often demanding unreasonable and trivial things from the company rather than focusing on their own job.1X Response9y
Thanks so much for your review. We agree there's (always) room for growth. One way we want to facilitate more #LoveWhereYouWork experiences is by sharing reviews like yours with our leadership team so that we can identify areas for improvement.

- WLB is good - Culture is nice and friendly to new hires - Scalability and tech stack is challenging
- Missing overall strategy and guideline at the company level - In house tech stack, some services have steep onboarding curve.

The culture is definitely one of the best reasons to work at Twitter in my opinion. Tweeps are very open to meeting, connecting and being helpful in any way they can. I have hardly had a 1:1 conversation with a Tweep that did not end in 'Let me know if I can help with anything' or something along the lines. (including tweeps from other offices).
I can not think of any.
