    I have been working at Twitter full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Better than start up company but not upto the mark of MNC.

    Cons

    No value for employees. Hire and fire is common in this company. Hope less employee polices. No transparency. Politics and group-ism in each office especially in India.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees equally and do not cheat the exit employees with non-payment of their legal dues. If company have any financial crises, please let the employees know about it. But don't cheat and blackmail employees with threaten bogus policies and one sided agreements which are no more valid. Be honest and professionalism in business especially with your employees. Follow corporate ethics. Improve your office culture.

    Get your act together and stop playing with employee futures

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

    Pros

    Worked with the smartest people I’ve encountered in my career. Perks are amazing compared to most companies, but not competitive with their peers so getting the best talent is difficult. Open heads are open for a long time, and lately have been hiring sub par. You stay for the people and the mission.

    Cons

    If they stay for the mission and the people, they leave because of their managers. The reviews about nightmare HR and politics are very real. Little opportunity for upward mobility. And there is NO accountability for managers - no incentive for them to be good managers and no way to correct their behavior. I do recommend working here ONLY IF you are confident that your manager has a good track record and that you are positive you want to work for them. Do not overlook this for the sake of working at Twitter.

    Advice to Management

    You need to have better manager reviews. You need to hold them accountable. You’re losing great people because of it.

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

    Pros

    + Good comp + Most people were mostly very nice + Fun stack

    Cons

    - Poor technical quality. Just because Twitter has a good reputation for engineering as a whole, don't think every team cares about engineering. - Political technical culture. Technical ideas not evaluated on their content, but on who is speaking them. - Some extremely mean, rude and aggressive people in the Boston office. - There is a /lot/ of unaddressed technical debt.

    Advice to Management

    The Boston office prides itself on having a 'startup' culture, in contrast to the rest of Twitter. I can see how someone might think that is cool, but Inappropriate jokes, harassment, and professional pressure to drink regularly with colleagues isn't most skilled professional's idea of a good work environment. I recommend toning down and trying to become more like the rest of Twitter.

    Pros

    Buffet lunch, 3 cafeterias, discount parking and computer perks. Free entertainment.

    Cons

    Group think. Boys alliances. Must think like everyone else or you get kicked out. If you complain about discrimination the legal team will make a case to get rid of the person. who complained.

    Advice to Management

    break up the management and upper tier alliance. Women on average get paid 1/4 of mens salaries. The culture and values must align to fairness in action from the company.
