    Pros

    The company stimulates you to be very proactive in defining the problems and the solutions. It takes to be a leader on everything you do.

    The culture is very strong and people really stand for the values.

    Cons

    Still needs to improve in term of processes and tools, but that's the point of the Pros above!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    - Working with smart and knowledge people every single second
    - Having famous people come into the office on a weekly appearance (athletes, movie stars, singers)
    - Working with individuals that want to make a difference

    Cons

    - Reorganizations to most departments if not monthly then bimonthly
    - Things are very much subjective such as promotions rather metric/benchmark base
    - People get very frustrated/upset in all departments (engineering, HR, sales etc.) because things are chaotic and seem at most times redundant/no one knows what is going on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Twitter needs to start investing in people within the company that have leadership skills. Twitter continues to proud itself of being a "start up" environment and while it is good to have that atmosphere the company needs to mature quickly and start making processes more streamline since right now is seems like people are running in circles. While Twitter was a great company to work for I do believe that a public traded company needs to have more visibility to their employees (and I'm not meaning Tea Time but in regards to team/org).
