The most brilliant and down to earth colleagues I've had in my career
- MANDATORY to come into the office. Even if the commute is 3 hours, they won't give you flexibility. Any WFH goes straight to Elon for approval. They check your badge log. - No free food despite having to go into the office. There are meals you can buy for $5, but they might get rid of that soon. They give you granola bars, but you even have to pay for snacks. - Random Elon requests: You have to submit monthly reviews of what you do (big-brother style) and you'll never know if it's a layoff. He'll pander you for ideas to improve the company. - Chaos: Company is bleeding talent. Teams are stretched so thin so expect to take on 3-5x the workload of an average employee. Is there a process/policy that your team follows? Throw that out the door cause Elon doesn't follow them. You'll find out about any OKRs through his Twitter feed. - Shut up and do your work: Don't question or push back, just do as you're told or you can get fired. - Promotions are rare, they don't care about career development. The goal is for you to work so hard you burn out and leave, then they just hire new people. - The attitude is that you're privileged to work for Elon, so any compensation is stocks (worthless for the foreseeable future). - Want to travel to HQ? You can stay in a meeting room on one of the floors in the building. - BRG, ERG, WLB? Consider that not applicable when you sign the offer letter.15

Working at Twitter was an opportunity to be part of an organization that values innovation and encourages employees to think outside the box. The constant push to improve products and services was inspiring. Twitter takes diversity and inclusion seriously. The company's commitment to fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment is evident in its policies and initiatives. I had the privilege of working with incredibly talented and passionate colleagues who were dedicated to their roles and always eager to collaborate on projects. Twitter's reach and impact on the world are undeniable. It's gratifying to work for a platform that connects people and enables conversations on a global scale. The fast-paced nature of the tech industry means there is always something new to learn. Twitter provided ample opportunities for professional growth and development.
While the fast-paced environment can be invigorating, it can also be overwhelming at times. Keeping up with the rapid changes and demands of the industry can be challenging. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance can be a struggle, especially during crunch times and product launches. It's essential to set clear boundaries and prioritize self-care. Twitter sets high expectations for its employees, which can be both motivating and demanding. Meeting these expectations requires dedication and commitment. The tech industry is highly competitive, and staying ahead of the curve requires constant effort. This can sometimes lead to stress and a sense of urgency. The transition to remote work brought about by external factors had its share of challenges, including communication hurdles and feelings of isolation. However, Twitter made efforts to mitigate these issues.1

Working at Twitter in 2020 was an exhilarating and insightful experience. The fast-paced environment and collaborative culture fostered innovation and creativity. It was truly inspiring to witness the platform's impact on global conversations and societal discourse. The company's dedication to diversity and inclusion initiatives was commendable, fostering a sense of belonging among employees. However, the year also posed unique challenges, with the COVID-19 pandemic altering our work dynamics. Nevertheless, Twitter's swift adaptation to remote work and commitment to employee well-being made the transition relatively seamless. Overall, my time at Twitter in 2020 was marked by growth, resilience, and a profound sense of purpose in contributing to a platform that influences the world's dialogue.
Honestly nothing I can think of.
