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

    Pros

    Twitter is an amazing place to work with a great set of benefits, and good work life balance.

    I came in to the company very skeptical, and I even turned down my initial phone screen. A manager gave me a call and talked me into coming for an in office interview. After the interview I was convinced this was an opportunity I couldn't miss.

    In my time here I've had the opportunity to work on big project, and really grow my career. I would recommend everyone give it a shot.

    Cons

    There is a lot of attention focused on Twitter. This can be distracting, but speaks to the importance of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus, and move the company forward. Execution is the key to the company's future.
