I have been working at Twitter as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

You get to work on an exciting project. You get to work in the heart of San Francisco. Great food, great people, good perks.

Cons

No gym inside the office(though there's yoga and other classes, but still no gym). Though not a big company it's not a startup anymore.

    Pros

    Lots of food. They serve a ton of snacks and meal options.

    Great perks for a startup, they are competitive with Zynga and Facebook on this.

    Short work hours, everyone leaves at 4 pm on Fridays for Tea Time.

    Low expectations for team members. easy to get promoted to Tech Lead. If you are coming from Google you will feel like a genius.

    Extremely social company, very friendly leadership.

    High salaries and restricted stock.

    Cons

    Very frustrating to be a Software Engineer coming from an environment like Google.

    Unusually high turnover for a startup tech company, particularly among senior management and high performers. You never know when someone is about to leave -- and often you have no idea why.

    Very secretive. I have no idea how the company is doing in terms of finances. Most big news I read about in Tech Crunch.

    Engineering reputation is poor. It's getting better, but hiring is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO is great, I just wish they didn't have so many executives leaving the company all the time. It's hard to keep track of and very bad for morale. Also I wish the company would innovate more. Before I joined I was told Twitter is going to do all these futuristic things but after a year and a half they've only had a surface level web client redesign that doesn't work very well.
