Pros

- A great mission, vision and focus on defending the user
- Open communication and transparency, easy to talk to senior management
- Serious commitment to open source

- Incredible food and benefits

Cons

- Some people are overworked and spread thin due to the growth
- Not the best location for HQ, mid market is a rough part of SF
- The company is very SF based, so remote work can be difficult at times
- The transition from a startup to a larger company has been challenging

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please balance the need to hire outside experience versus promoting within. There's an incredible amount of talent within the organization. Also please look at accommodating people who work remotely so we can reach everyone in the world.

    Pros

    Great opportunities, great culture, and great people. Lots of exciting work, in cutting edge technologies, where there is no fear in trying to make the world a better place.

    Cons

    Hiring has been heavy, but where the new workers fit into the picture is somewhat of a mystery in many groups. Potential for lower quality hires due to sheer numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the company feeling in check avoid the bureaucracy that will inevitably result

    Pros

    - Twitter has more integrity than other companies. We respect the user's voice as well as our employees.
    - Twitter employees are passionate about changing the way the world communicates. You get to work with a diverse group of individuals who share a common mission.
    - Twitter promotes from within. You get an opportunity to expand beyond your current expertise and scope. You are always learning.
    - Despite growing 10x in my time here, I actually feel that our talent level has increased from the early days. We are able to attract the best talent in engineering, sales, sales marketing, comms, legal, BizDev and finance.

    Cons

    - A rotating door of product management leadership has hindered the product strategy for many years.
