      Best company I've worked for

      Pros

      Dorsey has done a lot of great work - clear vision for the long term future, great culture with a true emphasis on employee happiness, diversity and work-life balance. Good money & perks. Interesting work, smart and nice colleagues. Startup vibe in a corporate structure. The company is financially solid even though it sucks at communicating with Wall Street.

      Cons

      Office cliques & groupthink. Middle management ranges from OK to mediocre, especially in the US. Outdated adtech makes life harder if you work with clients. Harder to make an impact if you're not in SF or NY. Wall Street doesn't like Twitter and Dorsey's frequent miscommunications don't help.

      Still lacking consistent direction

      Pros

      Twitter has a lot of work and hires smart engineers, and has a flexible work program

      Cons

      You won't get any help from management outside your team. Work across teams is frowned upon. Culture has become cutthroat, territorial and toxic. After years of working with obsolete technology they are finally addressing their technical debt but have a very long way to go. the development environment and production environment is still years behind other companies. Still huge rifts between development teams on how to actually do their job, in large part because of the fractured and uneven developer support within the company. Rifts are only increasing due to a large hiring push across all organizations. Remote/work-at-home has made work/life balance even worse than it was before covid.
