    Pros

    Every level can make an impact here. After 11 years, still feels like a start up, but with developing process/structure/policies. Twitter is a global brand name. If you like the spotlight, and getting lots of attention when you say "I work at Twitter," then its a great place for you. The company is competitive in salary, making big adjustments on promoting growth internally, hiring better leaders, hard workers, and people that really care about being a Global "NEWS" source. Great work balance. Amazing perks - Free food all day, booze, cell phone, gym, etc. No formal vacation policy and 5 months paid Mat/Pat leave by far the best in the country. They make it comfortable to work here.

    Cons

    Still stuck in the stigma of "social media" and wall street measuring success by one poor measuring tool - "Monthly Active Users." Not much else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing on the platform (easier to use and understand).

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

    Pros

    At Twitter, I finally felt that I was in a work environment that is save to come out as transgender and start transition. Twitter has been very respectful and accommodating in that regard.
    There are also many benefits like breakfast and lunch, gym membership, discounts, a free on-site barista in the morning, quiet corners everywhere to work comfortably on a sofa or so.
    Twitter treats employees like people rather than numbers and this leads, in my experience, to people wanting to perform to the highest standard and to engage and come forward with ideas. Very intelligent people to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to schedule meetings because of time zones.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very open to suggestions and keeps in touch with team members. This is being practiced all the way from the CEO down to small teams. Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The engineers are very smart and I learned a considerable amount from them.

    Cons

    There are too many engineers and management move slowly for fear of alienating existing users.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to make big changes.
