Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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 Management

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.
