    I have been working at Twitter for less than a year

    Pros

    Give you responsibility, listen to your input, give you impactful projects that make a difference. Very well organized internship program. Formal mentorship program was very helpful!

    Cons

    Literally no cons of internship itself. Tough to get full time work post-internship if you aren't an engineer.

    I worked at Twitter for less than a year

    Pros

    -great platform -big tech name -beautiful offices -great perks/benefits/swag

    Cons

    -treated like a number rather than a person -projects were constantly thrown away after many hours of dedicated, wasted time means wasted money spent -there were lots of layoffs during my time there and they were poorly communicated, like disgusting

    Advice to Management

    So much unnecessary money is spent for frivolous things which leads to great people getting laid-off or quitting. Plan better and wiser to decrease spending and keeping personnel.

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

    Pros

    You are treated as a human being with goals, dreams, and desires - you are more than an employee. You are supported to follow your dreams and are encouraged to continue to grow. There are meal, phone, commuter, fitness benefits. The work/life balance is exceptional. The culture is by far like no other place I have worked. It truly is by far the best place to work!

    Cons

    Location - there aren't as many growth opportunities outside of USA, however, it seems as though this is changing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage growth opportunities for employees all over the world, not just within USA. Equal opportunities for all, regardless of location.

    Pros

    Full autonomy, great management team, internal resources, and collateral are readily available and easy to access. Mostly fair targets.

    Cons

    Few layers of management to work through, but mostly manageable. Need to be in SF or NY if you want to advance in your career.

    I worked at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    Fast paced environment with constantly evolving products. No two days are the same and as product evolves you are required to think up new solutions which keeps you on your toes and keeps things interesting. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Very poor collaboration among teams within a small office. Support falls back on service level agreements and SLAs are consistently defined by global deals, not what makes sense in the Canadian market. Constantly changing verticalization makes things incredibly awkward when dealing with agencies that cover several. Very limited mobility sees people leaving the organization. While base salaries are pretty good,...
