I worked at Twitter as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

You learn a lot of things from some of the great engineers that work here. The ability to get the opportunity to code and write "clever" code is more encouraged than it is at other companies. Yay Scala!

Cons

I was at their old location when I was working there, but it was not in a good part of town. There new place is supposed to be awesome, though!

    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.

    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
