    I have been working at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    Working on impactful projects everyday. Building a world-class team and company. Flexibility to work from home 1 or 2 days when needed.

    Great parental leave for birthing, non-birthing or adoptive parents at 20 weeks fully paid! Non-accrued PTO, take time off when you need with pre-approval.

    Cons

    Things change quickly and often, which keeps you on your toes and it is never boring. If you're looking for something static, this isn't a place for you.

    I worked at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    Benefits/perks (Gym/phone reimbursement, no-premium options for medical/dental/vision)
    Good breakfast/lunch/snacks
    Awesome people and amazing coworkers
    Open culture and leadership

    Cons

    Pay: pretty low compared to market pay (also very low 401k match)
    Work-life balance: terrible and was expected to be working all hours of the day to get the amount of work done because team was understaffed
    Managers: Your happiness and success greatly depends on your manager (moreso than at other companies where I've worked). Unfortunately, my manager was terrible, condescending, and hated their job.

    Pros

    Great perks free food and European like culture. Very friendly culture and happy employees and inclusive. Work life balance.

    Cons

    It can be too much like a vacation where issues aren't addressed with urgency but casually. The Senior Management is not serious at times where people aren't challenged to their potential. (glaze over issues) Idle resources with too much time and happy go lucky culture is not good if you are a career driven person.

    Advice to Management

    Create balance where there is career development and some challenge
