    I have been working at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    Twitter is very open and transparent inside the company, with little friction caused by bureaucratic nonsense. From my first day I've been able to make big changes to the code base and deploy these changes to production. It has been relatively easy to work with coworkers across teams to complete broader projects. I've always felt compensated fairly for the work I do, and I've never felt the need to consistently work long days.

    Cons

    It's in an interesting state as it has been making its transition from small start up to big company, and many internal processes have not scaled. Twitter is developing corporate infrastructure to preserve it's culture at scale, but it's not quite there yet.


  2. "Best internship I've ever had"

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

    Pros

    You will ship code used in production, you can have a say in virtually all company decisions, you will be generously compensated, you will learn a ton.

    Cons

    You may find yourself hindered by confusing internal tools that aren't managed well or well-documented. Depending on your team, you're likely to encounter a lot of friction before you get to real work.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate more resources on dev-prod. There should be teams devoted to evaluating, documenting, and updating all tools used tat the company.
