    I have been working at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    You work with a platform that is connecting people everyday to the world, letting voices be heard, sparking revolutions and democratising the world at large. If that doesn't motivate you - chances are very few things will :) The culture is empowering - You are the master of what you want to create here and the company stands behind you for support. Leadership is very transparent and approachable. I've worked in two big global companies before and the level of transparency here is my favourite thing.

    Cons

    We're still figuring some things out so things are constantly evolving. If that's not something someone is comfortable with then I can see how that might be a problem for them.

    I have been working at Twitter full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I could go on for a while about why Twitter is a great to work, I feel as though all of my friends are sick of hearing me talk about it. The pay is great, the perks are great, the tech and people are great and the food is amazing. :-) It's just great.

    Cons

    Large company. Offices are usually in the city so if you live outside the city get ready for the commute.

    I have been working at Twitter full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you like being a cog in a larger machine, then steer clear of Twitter/TellApart. This is one of the few places where I've been able to ramp insanely fast in terms of impact and responsibility. There are different challenges every day and plenty of opportunities for me to give feedback into Twitter/TellApart's future products and processes. The team is the best I have ever worked with...full stop. TellApart's bar for new hires is extremely high, but that has made the environment extremely positive. There have been plenty of blog posts regarding Twitter's "morale problem" but it's generally overblown. There are also too many perks to mention. In general, we are VERY well taken care of.

    Cons

    There have been quite a few shake-ups in senior management, but for the most part this hasn't affected my day-to-day. I am still optimistic about Twitter's future. Twitter/TellApart is not a place for people that need to be told what to do everyday. You should consider Twitter/TellApart if you lean more towards "asking forgiveness rather than permission" mindset. If you're coming from a start-up, you will feel a loss of nimbleness coming into a larger, publicly traded company.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate more; Continue to be transparent and show us what's succeeding/failing on the product side; Message more that failure is OK as long as we are iterating quickly and taking away some learnings.

    Pros

    Great food, perks, location, office environment. The product is doing amazing things in the world. I'm proud to work at Twitter

    Cons

    Chaotic, inexperienced management. It doesn't appear that twitter really values it's employees. The product is awesome, but the leadership struggles to provide vision and execute.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to morale and leadership issues.

    I have been working at Twitter as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interns are treated like full time employees. You will receive relevant work that will impact not only your team, but the future of the company. Twitter is filled with the best and brightest in the industry and it's humbling to work along with these people, if only for a summer. Twitter has amazing benefits and working 8 hours a day is effortless here. I genuinely looked forward to Mondays while working here.

    Cons

    There are no-cons to working for Twitter as an intern. This is hands down one of the best internships a college student can obtain.

    Advice to Management

    Non San Francisco Interns don't do enough together and hardly interact because we are all on different teams. Would love to see interns interact more.
