    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Twitter full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great CEO. Very transparent and genuinely cares about the company
    - Very smart people (May be due to the Pre-IPO bubble but thats fine!)
    - Really Challenging problems to work on
    - Competitive Salaries and excellent stock awards for engineers

    Cons

    - *Lots* of Engineering managers for a company of this size.
    - Most of the Engineering managers are non-technical and add little-value (but do create a lot of noise)
    - Alarming amount of internal politics for a company so small (of ~2000 people)!. Feels like a company with 10x the number of people.

    Advice to Management

    Twitter has too many "Engineering" Managers. I can't comment on non-engineering teams (Most of the Engineering managers have less than 8 reports). Most of the are non-technical and add little value. Infact they get in the way.

    - There is no clear career guidance defined for employees. Engineering Managers rarely discuss 'career levels' or provide guidance

    - Many engineering teams work on stuff that is not very useful but somehow build a narrative that sounds grand and totally justifies the work. Again a technically competent Engineering manager would have helped!
