Great people, not a great workplace
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 3, 2018
The culture at Twitter is very competitive and cut-throat. I loved everyone I met, but I'd never met so many unhappy and stressed out people in my life. I think the CEO doesn't care about his users or the people who work at Twitter. Everyone I know who left is very happy about it.
Pros
Free lunches, good people
Cons
Terrible management, awful culture

No such thing as a typical day at Twitter
Sales Support (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 30, 2018
Intense political maneuvering, not a meritocracy at all, hard work undervalued, upper management and HR eschew supposed company values of transparency and honesty, lack of transparency results in lack of candid conversations, no room for critical thinking or constructive feedback

Great corporate environment to work in
Head Coach/Trainer, Program Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 11, 2018
Twitter has been able to maintain their start-up culture and perks, and did a great job promoting health and wellness with their employees. Their on-site gym was a great facility that got people interacting outside their respective teams. HR were very selective with their contracting with coaches who would manage and run the fitness program, but the engagement was always positive. Overall, great workplace for both employees and contract workers.

Client Account Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 10, 2018
Twitter was by far the best company I have ever worked for! From the people to the culture within the company, and having the ability to change the social space - it was a remarkable experience!

Great product and people
Senior Manager, Product Strategy (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJuly 6, 2018
Great product and team but leadership struggled to define what twitter was while I was there. As such, the company wasn't as productive as it could be and it often felt like the consumer and business orgs weren't aligned.
Pros

Cons
turnover

Mid management too busy kingdom building
Senior Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 7, 2018
With the high level of turnover, middle management spent more time trying to fight for status and swell their personal kingdoms, than they did fixing the product issues.

A culture of millennials. Attrition was extremely high.
Pros
Fantastic food and benefits
Cons
Poor management. High staff turnover

Fighting Hard to Maintain Relevance
Client Partner (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CADecember 5, 2017
A lot of great people here passionate about the platform and its role in the world. The challenge is how best to convey that to customers. The Google & Facebook duopoly is real. Twitter wants to consider themselves in that same realm, but our clients are more likely to categorize us in the "nice to have" bucket including Amazon, Pinterest and Snap.

great work life balance but poor leadership
Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 22, 2017
it does seem to be getting better, albeit slowly but the people responsible for making day to day decisions don't always seem to make informed decisions. management seems to be more behind the curve and reactionary than able to plot out strategies and plan properly.
Pros
free breakfast/lunch, good work-life balance.
Cons
poor leadership

Productive and fun place to work
Senior Credit Analyst (Contract) (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 21, 2017
Enjoyed my time at Twitter although I was working in a Contract role.
My day usually started at 7:30 and ended at 4:30.
It was a steady busy job which required a lot of contact via e-mail. There was a lot of interfacing with the Account Manager, Order Management and Customer Support.
Pros
Free Lunches, great benefits, flex Time

Twitter is a great place for any company or local business to advertise upcoming events and exhibitions in a straightforward, simple manner. Making a post is fast and easy to plan in advance.

Cool product, horrible culture
Senior Engineering Manager (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 30, 2017
Cool, trendy company with all the extravagant SV startup perks and vibe. Engineers run the show, though, and no adult supervision means the inmates run the asylum.
Pros
Free food, cool vibe
Cons
Lack of accountability or desire to ship, no product vision, snowflake hipsters

Finance and Sourcing Operations (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAApril 25, 2017
Learned different systems. The most enjoyable part of the job were working with different people. Management wasn't there, since everyone were busy. Management doesn't spend as much time with you as you would like. Culture is great, smart people.
Pros
Free breakfast, free lunch, free dinner
