Fun, exciting place to work, but has it's issues

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Twitter full-time for more than a year

ProsTons 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

ConsLots 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 Senior ManagementAggressively 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
