Pros

Great company mission, Twitter truly led by core set of values.

The food, great restaurant quality food with good variety.

Starting to become more data-driven, great to see engineering efforts being more guided by analytics research.

Cons

Office in shady part of town, not too great when leaving late at night.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Despite stock price, keep vision focused on long-term trajectory!

    I worked at Twitter full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Tons of exceptionally smart people, good benefits, open office with great food/snacks, always something fun/interesting going on like happy hours or celebrity visits, close to Bart

    Cons

    Lots of growing pains due to rapid expansion, sometimes cramped office, over-committed managers, increasing levels of hierarchy leading to increased "politics", frequent re-orgs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aggressively enforce the no-more-than-10-direct-reports rule for managers. Ensure that managers are helping their employees succeed, rather than just punishing them when they fail.

    Pros

    There are a good number of Smart people, plus there are decent benefits, and there are interesting challenges with new technology

    Cons

    Constant re-organization, probably trying to grow too quickly. Working with some teams is a lot worse than working with other teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, and try to provide better opportunities to change groups
