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

Pros

- Small enough to be able to make a significant impact, big enough to have resources to do so
- Strong leadership and company values
- Interesting challenges abound
- Scrappy, desirable to someone who wants to get their hands dirty and "figure it out"

Cons

- Opportunities for improved efficiency across the company
- Less structure than at peer companies that have been around for longer; for people wanting to follow a clearly defined path, this is not the place for you
