Approves of CEO

I worked at Twitter full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Dedicated, talented people.
Incredible access. Business, entertainment, you name it. Twitter has a relationship.
Healthy compensation, and at HQ, top notch food.
Good likelihood you'll ship.
Decent exec communication and great transparency inside the company.
Hacking culture.

Cons

Lots of management. Lots of reorgs. No executive team design leadership, and lackluster design culture. Product management runs the show. Little room for creative exploration. Lots of committee-based decisions. Remote offices are a complete nightmare if you are working on the core product.

Advice to Management

Keep the design team entirely in SF.

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

    Pros

    Good work, snacks and food. Twitter has a lot of smart people.

    Cons

    - unspoken requirement to be available all the time (in many teams)
    - forget any life outside of work (some teams are good), all in the name of passion. Good luck with having a life if you are not a manager.
    - rather bad middle tier management

    Advice to Management

    Hire good managers
