    Pros

    Intelligent, fun, and vibrant workforce. Awesome food and quality of life. Being based within the city makes the urban office community more exciting (despite being located in a sort-of-sketchy area). Exciting growth with global aspirations. Overall, pretty great.

    Cons

    Explosive growth can lead to concerns about the future company culture (ie "selling out," "feeling too corporate," etc). Management has handled the growth trajectory well, but becoming publicly-traded can lead to short-term pressures in the future. This could hinder the fun and passionate atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your best to maintain the electric spirit of the company as it grows more and more.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Twitter as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Transparent company with good communication from upper management about most issues.
    - Set of core values that people know and care about.
    - People are smart, friendly, passionate, open, and responsive.
    - Lots of really cool projects going on.
    - Great compensation and perks.

    Cons

    - Visibility into a few issues and activities are not as good as they could be for those not directly related.
    - Some areas of the company and product do not seem to be fully "ironed out" in terms of direction and what the company believes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to maintain strong lines of communication with the company as a whole, especially with the rapid growth the company has been experiencing.
