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

    Twitter has great people all around me. The quality of the advice and discussion the co-workers provide is great. The benefits are great too.

    Cons

    The massive expansion of the workforce sometimes make it difficult to find an engineer that knows every corner of their product. The volatile stock makes it very difficult to estimate taxes (this might be pro).
