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

    Pros

    Career development at Twitter has become even more of a focus.
    Employees hear frequently from senior management / execs, and conversation is encouraged from all levels of the business. No good idea is ignored.
    Great to see DickC chip in on an idea circulated, and get involved in the nitty gritty.
    Salary is good. Work life balance even better.

    Cons

    Can be a little 'disorganised' and day-to-day processes aren't always in place, where the Sales team needs guidance.

    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!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being transparent and open. Restricting access to information only makes it more difficult for teams to reach their goals.

    Pros

    Twitter's values are not just stuck on the wall. They are live and active in each meeting, presentation and business decision

    Cons

    A lot of constant change but this is also a great way of learning and getting to do things you'd never have exposure to in other companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be forward thinking and keep doing what you're doing

    I have been working at Twitter

    Pros

    Twitter is a very good company to take an internship. I have a lot of responsibilities and I am not considered as just an intern. I feel like part of the team and I am proud to work at Twitter. What's more, Twitter treats very well its interns in term of benefits.

    Cons

    I can't see any inconvenients yet.

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

    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

    - Work environment: Open culture, relaxed, hard-working but fun.
    - Colleagues: everyone is highly intelligent, ambitious and striving to improve the business.
    - Perks: Twitter takes very good care of its employees.

    Cons

    Twitter is still a young company growing at an incredible rate, which, on occasions, results in disorganization internally. Can also be bureaucratic at times. Too many emails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more cohesion across the organization. Help everyone remain focused on our goals.
