I have been working at Twitter full-time

Pros

Many teams are good and twitter-20 is true (a.k.a great food, you gain 20 pounds).

Cons

Twitter was previously great place to work.
Unlike to bigger companies like Google, there could be better opportunities but the management has FAILED to scale the organization well.
Managers have no interest in setting up the new hires for success, they are focused on getting short term results. Thus leading to many cases of hire and fire.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean up the mid tier management

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

    Pros

    Pretty good (conditions apply)
    Breakfast and lunch is good but dinner is bad half the time

    Cons

    They overwork you.. they do not lead / inspire you, instead they drive you to meet the expectations
    When management screws up the plans and cancel whole releases its all okay (as they are doing the right thing no matter what) but when engineers mess up something they point fingers at you.

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

    Pros

    Close to nothing, the location, the people, the product, the company and the managers are all awful. The food was good.

    Cons

    Well, everything - I can think of too many things that are wrong with this company to list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the BS and get a handle of your company. The goal of max employees for managers is junk and you know it. This has caused so much middle management BS for employees to get anything done
