    -comp isn't top of market anymore but the comp to >40 hour week ratio is amazing for the bay area
    -good performers can work on almost anything they want

    -most teams have open headcount and it means things are often under-staffed

    Advice to Management

    So many predictions of Twitter's demise have come and gone that I don't even notice them anymore. Just keep it an ok place to work and I have no reason to leave.
