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

Pros

Great culture, lots of people with similar goals and interests, tools I need to do my job. Often find myself working for the fun of it rather than to keep management happy. Lots of room to move up here.

Cons

Too many people here expecting the world to bend to their whim. Twentitled being a commonly used word. Often working with so many smart people you can get issues with people not being willing to bend because they believe they are right. Often slow to fire problem employees.

    I have been working at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    Many teams are good and twitter-20 is true (a.k.a great food, you gain 20 pounds).

    Cons

    Twitter was previously great place to work.
    Unlike to bigger companies like Google, there could be better opportunities but the management has FAILED to scale the organization well.
    Managers have no interest in setting up the new hires for success, they are focused on getting short term results. Thus leading to many cases of hire and fire.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the mid tier management

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

    Pros

    Close to nothing, the location, the people, the product, the company and the managers are all awful. The food was good.

    Cons

    Well, everything - I can think of too many things that are wrong with this company to list.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the BS and get a handle of your company. The goal of max employees for managers is junk and you know it. This has caused so much middle management BS for employees to get anything done
