Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

    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).

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to help the company scale during times of rapid growth. Make an impact on something huge.

    Cons

    There are some bad apples in in the pasture and it's amazing how they stick around. Bad hires often stick around.
