    I have been working at Twitter full-time for less than a year

    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.
