    Pros

    Very focused on all that silicon valley life, with cool perks, benefits and environment; Space for employees to give ideas and evolve; Pretty transparent for a big tech company; Awesome culture and fun people working in offices all around the world. Changing all the time.

    Cons

    For a company that really wants to be global, it's still VERY US-centric; There's no focus on leadership development before you get to the top. Amazing recruitment team, not very good HR. Changing all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Be global, not just american; start developing managers early on, so they'll become better bosses.

      I worked at Twitter full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      Perks. Everything you would expect from a Tech company. Free "stuff" and inviting environment. It's comfortable to work there and at times, even exciting.

      Cons

      Its had to reinvent itself a few times. Stock cant seem to find a groove. Company lacks innovation and still stuck with the same problems around abuse. HR is a complete mess with tons of attrition and several leaders coming in and reinventing the wheel.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on the product. Do something big. Its more of the same each year.

        I have been working at Twitter full-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Great food and office location in downtown San Francisco. Flexibility to WFH.

        Cons

        The marketing department is a mess. Senior management is often bickering amongst themselves and all the marketing teams are at odds. There is no top-down communication from the CMO or encouragement to work together as a whole team on company-wide initiatives. Everyone operates in silos. Getting work completed here is next to near impossible because everyone talks over each other and tries to kill each other's projects.

        Advice to Management

        Be present. Show yourself. Speak to the entire team as a unit. Stop promoting legacy dinosaurs. Encourage people to work together and remove leadership if they're not willing to cooperate with other marketing teams to get work done. Hold people accountable to deadlines and marketing budgets!

      • "Company treats its users terribly."

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at Twitter

          Pros

          Good location in an amazing city

          Cons

          The company refuses to provide any actual customer service for its users actively seeking help. Because of this, its reputation and its relationships with its users are going downhill.

          Advice to Management

          Be a company that people can be proud to work for, not one that people are ashamed to work at because it has no customer service and refuses to help its users who are seeking help.
