    I have been working at Twitter full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I really like how Twitter focuses on transparency and has a small company feel. Frequent all-hands meetings bring everyone together around our common goals. Everyone is helpful and is pumped to make things better. From a tech standpoint, Twitter pushes the industry forward in many areas.

    Cons

    Have to be able to ignore the noise of working at a public company that gets a lot of attention. Fast paced environment may not be for everyone.

    Pros

    I have purpose in what I'm doing. I can connect the dots from my work to the company's overall objectives. Our executives are open, honest, transparent...and well, just cool people doing cool things in and out of work.

    Cons

    Very fast paced, but once you get the hang of it, it is invigorating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are on the right track on all fronts. I believe in them, the vision, and their leadership. This is the experience of a lifetime for anyone who considers working at Twitter. This is the place to be!

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

    Pros

    Twitter is an open, collaborative, innovative culture of smart people doing impactful things. Our products impact hundreds of millions of people around the world, and it is a really excellent place to work.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any cons to working at Twitter. I am just writing this to fill the 20 word minimum that Glassdoor requires of all reviews, but Twitter is honestly a great place to work.

    I have been working at Twitter

    Pros

    Great co-workers, stable workloads, amazing salary, no BS environment, highly motivated teams, no attitudes, generally kind co-workers, great food, great benefits, amazing and impressive leadership team. This place is amazing on almost every scale.

    Cons

    Code base and systems feel more like a living and growing organism that can be very hard to navigate. Difficult to know best practices. Huge amount of documentation and code that may or may not be used. In lots of ways the freedom and flexibility is a plus but comes with baggage. Getting bootstrapped into the environment takes times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the amazing work!

    Pros

    Laid back, cool people. Easy work. Food, drinks and snacks for free. Company outings.

    Cons

    After a year contract you are probably done. No chance for full time job unless you are lucky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Convert people from contract to full time if they deserve it.
