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

Pros

-Challenging and interesting work in a Big Data environment
-Collaboration is made easier by strong company values and friendly co-workers. There are some issues communicating across many locations
-The company encourages a culture of learning and growth. There are classes and talks almost every day on various topics and most of them are available to remote employees via video streaming.
-Great benefits including unlimited vacation time and free snacks/drinks. You get a good amount of t-shirts and other swag too.

Cons

The datacenter works on West Coast time, so the hours can be late. Many datacenter employees have to work one weekend day every other week as well.

    Pros

    High energy people with lots of passion and a killer product. Hack week is cool / good for company innovation!

    Cons

    Blend of experienced and inexperienced managers, expect 3 hours work every evening and road map is not clear. Salary / Benefits decent but not up to par with comparable employers

    I have been working at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    - A great mission, vision and focus on defending the user
    - Open communication and transparency, easy to talk to senior management
    - Serious commitment to open source
    - Strong engineering culture, 50% of the company are engineers
    - Incredible food and benefits

    Cons

    - Some people are overworked and spread thin due to the growth
    - Not the best location for HQ, mid market is a rough part of SF
    - The company is very SF based, so remote work can be difficult at times
    - The transition from a startup to a larger company has been challenging

    Advice to Management

    Please balance the need to hire outside experience versus promoting within. There's an incredible amount of talent within the organization. Also please look at accommodating people who work remotely so we can reach everyone in the world.
