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

Pros

Twitter is an exciting place to work. Hyper growth means there is a lot of opportunity to take on more responsibility. I also have a lot of freedom in my job to drive the changes that I envision. The most important thing to me is that Twitter tries to keep to its values. I'm proud to work alongside folks who are fighting for user's first amendment right.

Cons

There is a lot of competition. You cannot coast in your job. What have you done for me lately?

    Pros

    The people are rad, problems get fixed, love the product. I've been at places that stayed the same indefinitely. Twitter is a company that is dynamic in it's goal setting and is willing to invest and pay off technical debt.

    Cons

    Some of your friends and family won't "get" twitter but have not problem telling you how many ninjas their pirates have vanquished on other social sites. The office has lots of benefits built in which can land employees on the entitled side...especially employees who have limited experience in the world outside of the silicon valley.


  2. "A fast paced environment with intelligent opinionated people always striving for improvement."

    Pros

    Very little corporate nonsense, free food + perks, great office, smart people, sense of doing something meaningful, defending free speech

    Cons

    Complexity - it's hard to keep up with new service X or Y (esp if named after a bird), ever-changing processes can be confusing, dependence on multiple groups can be draining.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your guns, don't compromise quality, don't sacrifice the user
