Pros

Collaboration - everyone here is pushing towards a common goal, we all want to see the company grow and become more successful. Wickedly smart people - we have some of the best people in their field but because the culture is so collaborative rarely do those smart people beat you over the head with their intellect. Speed of decision - decisions are made quickly so we can move into execution swiftly, decisions are supported by data but not to excess.

Cons

It is chaotic and shows signs of a company that has gone through some rapid growth. Things often aren't written down and there is a lot of work to do to support this growth. However that is a really exciting con to have to deal with as the company expands and brings onboard talent from other, larger companies there's a danger that the culture will get diluted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on doing what you are doing. The culture here is something you should be proud of, don't let the growth in the company kill that.

    Pros

    Food, Coworkers, Innovative atmosphere, work-life balance, perks at workplace

    Cons

    Increasingly puzzling decisions by Sr. Execs. Such as promoting individuals to Director or higher level even though experience does not support. More as reward for being part of company from beginning than based on good, practical, business sense / decisions. Also, comany does not seem to be working on biggest problem for future of company which is growing user base by making Twitter more appealing to broader user base - seems more interested in becoming part of mainstream media

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in Sr. Management with experience in the areas you wish to strengthen. Do not promote inexperienced individuals as nothing more than a reward for being with company longer than newer hires (even though they are better suited). Company needs to begin acting like a global corporation, not a start up any more. Focus first on why more people don't use Twitter.

    Pros

    Fun work environment. Good pay.

    Cons

    Terrible neighborhood. Lack of leadership. Had to work many hours. Corp culture being ruined by an IPO mentality. Poor user growth based on lack of consumer marketing and too many brainiacs creating the on boarding process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Test the product with regular users not tech experts. You'll never reach every person on the planet if you don't make a product easy to use by every person on the planet.
