    Pros

    Twitter is a growing public company with a lot potential. Being in the social media sphere, it's a high energy company with a lot of media coverage and attention.

    Cons

    The company still has growing pains and struggles to define itself and it's internal processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people with balanced skill sets and good attitudes, then hold on to them.

    Pros

    In previous companies, I often had to fight for small things that I thought could make me more productive or the project more successful. For example, something as simple as requesting an ergonomic mouse was a hassle - with levels of approvals and complicated expense procedures. At Twitter, you just walk up to one of the IT offices and say "Can I have an Evoluent upright mouse?" and they just hand it to you without a single question. Everyone wants to do the right thing. If something is obviously a good idea, you're just expected to do it, you don't need to ask for permission. I've never experienced that before at other companies.

    Cons

    From a purely engineering perspective, there is a lot that could be improved, such as some engineering practices or code quality. I don't mind too much, because it means that there is still something to work on. There is a lot of work to be done to improve the engineering practices, but the good thing is that current engineering management are all focusing a lot on these issues, and things will improve!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have all faith in current management, I honestly can't give them any useful advice.

    Pros

    Collaborative, progressive culture. Opportunity to make things happen, and to have your voice heard. Leadership is transparent and communicates fearlessly with employees. Benefits are great, from excellent healthcare (for you and your family or +1) to perks like fitness reimbursements. Twitter has excellent training and learning opportunities, helping professionals continue to grow in their skill sets and discover new areas of interest. Additionally, I believe that Twitter is doing great things in this world: liberating voices, assisting in the igniting of revolutions, and bringing light to things that matter around the world.

    Cons

    $401k plan could be better, but Twitter is identifying and seeking to resolve this. Pay should be more competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue what's going well, identify cons swiftly. This is a fantastic company, and we want it to continue drawing the best people!

    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

    The compensation and benefits are both excellent, but that is the case at a ton of companies across SV. What makes Twitter special is how talented, driven and visionary the employees are. You will be challenged every day at Twitter. People are not here to punch the clock. They are here to make Twitter as awesome as it can be.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be a challenge because everyone at Twitter is very focused and driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing all the right things. You have chosen the right product and eng leadership. Now give them the full support they need to drive positive change throughout the org.

    Constant media attention and a slow response by leadership to change the narrative. This has improved dramatically however.
