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

Pros

Getting to work shoulder to should with some of the absolute top talent in in the industry is a big perk.

The SF headquarters has truly phenomenal facilities, and travel between offices happens easily.

Cons

Sometimes engineering decisions can get bogged down a little bit in bureaucracy, but I feel that's natural for a company of this size.

    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
