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

    Pros

    Love the people I work and I'm challenged everyday in my role.
    Massive opportunity to make impact in a company that has a global impact everyday.
    Great benefits.

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

    All the standard stuff you'd expect. Challenging work, big impact, smart people, blah blah blah. The big difference is that every company thinks it affects the world, but Twitter really does.

    Cons

    My biggest concern is internal snark and people only here for the stock. There seems to be an overlap between the two. Fortunately it's not the majority, but it's distracting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one's perfect but I just hope you keep driving forward and not getting distracted.

    I have been working at Twitter

    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.

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

    Pros

    I recently moved to Twitter from Facebook, and I can confidently say that Twitter is the best job I have ever had. Everyone is smart and friendly. Culturally, there is an undercurrent of idealism that I have not seen anywhere else.

    Cons

    Nothing major comes to mind.

    Current Employee - Data Scientist in San Francisco, CA

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

    Pros

    - work on a meaningful platform that is still growing and still has lots of potential
    - work with smart, passionate people. The composition of the work force is much more diverse in terms of personality and background than your average bay area tech company
    - San Francisco location. No need to commute to a campus along the Peninsula

    Cons

    - Twitter will forever be trying to shed its hacky culture image. You never quite feel like you are cutting edge or doing things right.
    - Getting better at this but still too many managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep choosing the best of the best in terms of leadership so that we can eliminate the lower levels of management

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

    Pros

    I've never met so many friendly people in one company! We're all passionate, dedicated, and supportive of each other and our work. The communication between exec and employees helps build trust in the work that we're doing. Plus the food is AMAZING. I love the work-life balance too. It's hard to have burnout when you have free Crossfit/Yoga and unlimited days off!

    Cons

    The hardest part is actually fighting the media's portrayal of Twitter, our MAU and our leadership. It feels like they're trying to undermine a good thing, but ultimately, the open communication within the company helps dispel the lies.
