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

Pros

Lots of opportunity to help the company scale during times of rapid growth. Make an impact on something huge.

Cons

There are some bad apples in in the pasture and it's amazing how they stick around. Bad hires often stick around.

    Pros

    Good engineers. Code is all out there and seen by everyone, great opportunity to understand various parts of the system.

    Cons

    New hires are not set up for success. Unless you have already worked in another web company expect difficult times. Though to be fair I hear many teams do a good job at it.
    My advise to anyone joining Twitter would be to join a team which has old time engineers and preferably under manager who were previously engineer at Twitter, else you won't get to experience the culture you would hope to see.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is good in communicating most things except that I feel weird to see them send out survey questions which indirectly indicate on the lines - 'we are not afraid to fire people'. I think Twitter could be upfront about this (like Netflix by putting this in their career page)
    Promote engineers interested in management internally to preserve the culture.
