Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer  in  San Francisco, CA
Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

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

    Twitter has great people all around me. The quality of the advice and discussion the co-workers provide is great. The benefits are great too.

    Cons

    The massive expansion of the workforce sometimes make it difficult to find an engineer that knows every corner of their product. The volatile stock makes it very difficult to estimate taxes (this might be pro).

    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.
