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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Great people, great food, great compensation, great learning opportunities, great opportunities to jump into the fast growing code-base. You get to do what matters to the world. Great work/life balance as well.

    Cons

    Well, I am not a big fan of San Francisco. It's a dirty and dangerous city.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe incentives?

    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 Management

    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.
