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

Pros

Good work, snacks and food. Twitter has a lot of smart people.

Cons

- unspoken requirement to be available all the time (in many teams)
- forget any life outside of work (some teams are good), all in the name of passion. Good luck with having a life if you are not a manager.
- rather bad middle tier management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire good managers

    - Visibility into a few issues and activities are not as good as they could be for those not directly related.

    Pros

    Interesting projects, really smart people, great perks, and highly visible company. It's fun to work at a company where most major feature releases are highlighted on TechCrunch and other tech blogs!

    Cons

    Sometimes analysis paralysis happens and decisions are slow.
