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

    Pros

    Amazing company culture. Great benefits. Hard working employees. Also a solid work life balance. Would recommend to a friend.

    Cons

    Management can be weak. Product shipping and iteration has been slow but is improving. Compensation is poor from a competitive standpoint.

    Advice to Management

    Get more diverse perspectives from employees who come from places other than Google. Lots of Google management who have failed to really make an impact here.

    I have been working at Twitter full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated coworkers. Highly collaborative environment that I enjoy coming to each day. Hours are reasonable, pay is very competitive, benefits are incredible, and managers are competent and thoroughly trained to manage people—no micromanaging, credit takers, or fail-up leaders in my group. I'm very happy here after a year.

    Cons

    The worst part of working at Twitter is the reputation we currently have, and combating the negative news and gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your employees and their managers. This place is special.
