Twitter employees are being warned to stay away from the company in a blind review. An activist claimed that there has been a cut-throat culture in the company since Elon Musk came under its leadership, Staff alone posted 33 reviews.
Twitter employees are posting company reviews on the visually impaired and warning potential entrants to “stay away from Twitter 2.0”. Employees posted 33 reviews of their employer on the anonymous networking site. And some say the culture has changed for the worse, describing it as “toxic”.
A blind user asked people to wake up and stay away from Twitter 2.0 in his review on December 3. He said the company offered fair compensation to those who joined before, but is “no longer transparent” after Elon Musk ruined everything.
Blind pointed out that users can only upload reviews of the company they work for. Anonymous posters are required to provide their work email address, job title and employer when signing up, so that Blind can infer users’ professional status.
A self-described people manager said in his review posted on December 6 that Twitter was a wonderful company with a welcoming culture and that if you value well-being or a safe workplace, don’t leave.
A Twitter employee gave the company a rating of one out of five stars. On his list of pros, he said: None. Twitter 1.0 was good, with activists including cut-throat culture and “leadership just sucking em” among the list of cons.
One reviewer described it as a “sinking ship with Elon Musk” in his review. They said: Worked with excessive hours, Always worked on PIP [Performance Improvement Plan] and threatened to be fired, Supervised by less qualified engineers, No credit for work done, No decision making power No.
Elon Musk issued an ultimatum to Twitter employees to sign up for his “Twitter 2.0” vision and “work longer hours at higher intensity” or quit after sacking nearly half of Twitter’s workforce last month.
Nearly 1,400 Twitter employees have signed up to Blind since Twitter was purchased by Elon Musk on October 27, and a total of 180 Twitter reviews have been posted by employees on Blind since Elon Musk took over, the founder pointed out.
