    Pros

    The people make it a great place to work, and reaslly focus on being yourself

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

    Pros

    Free food, gym subsidies, economy travel, etc. Easy place to come up with new ideas by locking yourself away and doing your own work.

    Cons

    A scattered and often changing vision. Filled with Oxbridge types and middle class snobs that make it difficult to be a foreigner without a lot of condescension.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on product, less on intra-office romance.

    I worked at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    - Twitter has an inspiring and an unparalleled product, and there is still so much unrecognized potential that I genuinely look forward to seeing unfold. I still love the product, the platform, and the greater Twitter ecosystem from employees to exec team to advertisers, and end-users.

    - Great benefits and work/life balance

    - Despite the criticism, I also think Jack is an amazing leader, and a human being.

    Cons

    I would recommend joining Twitter, but stay far, far away from the Finance team if you want to experience career growth.

    - Middle and upper management lacks strategic vision.
    - Favoritism and corporate politics is proudly displayed by management
    - Lack of career growth and promotion opportunities if you're not favored
    - Compensation is not competitive compared to the industry
    - Ineffective org structure - Some teams are much too bloated while others struggle to stay afloat. (Favorites get all the headcount)
    - Everything I mentioned in the pro section does not compensate for the cons when you feel your efforts are not valued.

    Advice to Management

    Please take a step back, and look at attrition and org structure.
