    Pros

    Smart professionals working to make Twitter the best it can be. People genuinely care about the work they are doing. Very open environment where you can ask questions and continue to grow as a professional. Perks and benefits are second to none!

    Cons

    If you struggle with ambiguity, Twitter might not be the best place for you. Not everything is defined, but the very real and great upside to this is that you can help define where things go!

    I worked at Twitter (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Exceptional pay and benefits - Recognized and well-respected brand - Talented colleagues, for the most part - Community outreach programs and internal diversity initiatives You get to work on a product that has significant global impact, you get to do it with generally awesome people, and you're treated very well. Twitter genuinely promotes a culture and espouses a mission you can be proud of.

    Cons

    - Myopic, disorganized, and gutless eng/product leadership - Opaque promotion process which was actually worsened through improvement attempts - Miserable open office space is a constant source of distraction - Serious, quantifiable issues with lack of equitable treatment of women and minorities, especially in eng, that the company does not seem to be taking seriously - Most executives refuse to accept responsibility for mistakes and shortcomings, and make a mockery of an ostensibly transparent culture by dodging hard questions at all-hands meetings The root of the problem is that good leadership at Twitter is lacking, both at the executive level and within the engineering and product orgs. There is not a shared clear, consistent, and bold vision for the future of the product and the company, so much as there is focus on making incremental changes to engagement/revenue metrics and spinning numbers to appease the Street (logged-out, anyone?). Most infuriatingly, few C-level and other members of senior management take responsibility for shortcomings, or provide real answers to hard questions raised by employees. I have watched Twitter flap for over a year with little progress, and now, understandably, investors are becoming angry. Costolo served as a scapegoat for Wall Street, but the truth is that he was very capable, and will be difficult to replace.

    Advice to Management

    Move faster. Be bold. Stop making excuses about missed OKRs and revenue targets, and start fixing the underlying problems. You've had plenty of time to figure this out. Do something to actually earn your obscene compensation packages.

    Pros

    Great food, perks, location, office environment. The product is doing amazing things in the world. I'm proud to work at Twitter

    Cons

    Chaotic, inexperienced management. It doesn't appear that twitter really values it's employees. The product is awesome, but the leadership struggles to provide vision and execute.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to morale and leadership issues.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    * Amazing stock grants (at least pre-IPO). * Great pay. * Great internal training. * Great food that's free and plentiful. * Decent engineering practices. * World-wide brand recognition. * Great location.

    Cons

    * Horrible management and management practices. * The engineering management pushed out many of the best engineers. * Constant turnover among management as well. * It's a shark tank. * It's so painful to code on their stack compared to Google App Engine or AWS.

    Pros

    Passionate and friendly team, plenty of opportunities to add real value, incredible lifestyle at the office, crazy perks.

    Cons

    CEO search can be taxing on employees, as we don't know who our leader is/will be.

    Advice to Management

    The management just needs to stay strong and always encourage morale, even when the press is hounding.
