    Pros

    In general, there seems to be a strong company-wide sense of inclusion and empathy, which really makes Twitter stand out. People are very passionate about the role that Twitter has in society, and while there is constantly a lot of public backlash towards the leadership around critical decisions, internally, I think that there is a lot of trust in the expertise and intentions of other teams. As an engineer, I feel empowered to work on projects that I think are valuable and interesting without feeling entangled in internal politics. Twitter was one of the first companies to really devote themselves to WFH, and the transition was essentially seamless, since Twitter was already shifting towards remote work. In addition, there are "Flexible Work" opportunities, where employees can request to temporarily or permanently work out of approved locations, which is quite amazing.

    Cons

    There are frequent re-organizations (every 4-6 months?), and while you learn to roll with the punches, it makes it difficult to plan out longer term projects, since staffing & priorities end up changing. You end up having a handful of half-baked projects that die after one or two iterations.

    Pros

    You're probably reading this bc you've seen us publicly take big swings all through 2020. What it's like inside: Deeply mission driven, all the way down. Smart, kind coworkers, earnest and caring mgmt. Not a good place for sharks. Incredibly committed to equity - I've never reported to a more diverse leadership team. The good news is the cons are well known (growth, revenue, velocity). These are huge opportunities if we can unlock them. Mgmt has listened and hired heavy hitters at the exec level, who are filling out senior leaders 2-3 levels down. Doing the right things in terms of big bets and velocity too - just need to stay the course and accelerate. For those comfortable in chaos with experience scaling companies, this is a really interesting time to join.

    Cons

    A late bloomer, Twitter often still feels like a teenage startup in terms of process chaos. Some healthy grumbling as we mature and processes change, but Tweeps are a remarkably good natured if talkative bunch, and we take our vitamins without being toxic.
