    I have been working at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work from home policy
    Free lunch
    Very great career growth opportunities
    Supportive managers and coworkers

    Cons

    If you're looking for a small startup or large company this is not the place to join.
    However, Twitter still has a small company feel to it with the stability of a larger one and each person can make a large impact on the millions of users that user our product.
    401k Match is not that great either, but other benefits/compensation makes up for this

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Twitter.

    Interview

    I was contacted by recruiter after I submitted my resume through web portal in May, 2012. I had three phone screen. It took them 3 months. After 3 phone screen they invited my to onsite tickets were booked. As I will be joining outside US, the H1B quota ran out. I was asked to delay the process till January, 2013.

    Once I contacted them back in December - January, never got to hear back from recruiter even after 6-7 mails. This is totally unprofessional way to treat a candidate. They don't even consider I had taken 3 phone screen already was genuinely interested in the company.

    I will warn potential candidate about such type of company which don't treat there candidates well.

    Interview Questions
