Pros

Great pay and benefits, great product, brilliant engineers, software releases frequent and often, company culture rocks, free food, personal showers, multiple gaming rooms, great terraces to relax and have lunch with fantastic views of San Francisco, open areas to collobarate, easy to commute to, and fun place to work!

Cons

Management is OK, but needs more training and development.

Advice to Management

Train internal managers more effectively.

    Pros

    Very open company, people are approachable and friendly. Good core values which are actually referenced in decision making. Company stands up for user's rights, no PRISM participation. Comp and benefits are great. Food! No, seriously - the catering is amazing.

    Cons

    Getting started as an engineer difficult. There are many internal tools and teams you've never heard of that aren't properly documented or easy to find. The onboarding is far too short leaving most of the actual training in the hands of your manager which ends up being luck of the draw.

    Advice to Management

    Need a greater focus on internal tools, training and developer productivity.

    Pros

    Twitter is probably one of the best place to work at. The people are great, people care about your well-being from day one and the perks are good. On the other hand, you are expected to work hard and be completely dedicated to your work. You will be given a lot and you are expected to give a lot back which makes perfect sense. New-new hire orientation is solid and really useful plus you will get to meet some employees from the early-days. Best way to see how it's like is to be invited by a friend or an acquaintance for lunch. (The food is great; there are all kind of foods)

    Cons

    There are definitely carrier opportunities however during the first week, I felt an employee needed to move mountains to be promoted. My point of view isn't set yet so I will see in the future.
