Current Employee - Site Reliability Engineer in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Twitter full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Smart co-workers. Great work/life balance. Hard work is rewarded and your direction/projects are often self driven. If you have an idea, you can implement it.

Cons

Poor performer's aren't well managed.Some people and teams consistently underperform and it seems they can just drift here forever and are protected from ever actually justifying why their products/projects are consistently failures.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean up the cruft and get rid of the dead weight. There's a lot of fun work to do here and if people are too lazy to do it, they shouldn't be wasting everyone else's time.

    I worked at Twitter full-time (more than an year)

    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.
