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

Pros

Dedicated, talented people.
Incredible access. Business, entertainment, you name it. Twitter has a relationship.
Healthy compensation, and at HQ, top notch food.
Good likelihood you'll ship.
Decent exec communication and great transparency inside the company.
Hacking culture.

Cons

Lots of management. Lots of reorgs. No executive team design leadership, and lackluster design culture. Product management runs the show. Little room for creative exploration. Lots of committee-based decisions. Remote offices are a complete nightmare if you are working on the core product.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the design team entirely in SF.

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

    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.
