    Love my team. It's very transparent within our team.

    -good performers can work on almost anything they want

    Cons

    -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.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Nice Culture, Transparent, Energy

    Cons

    Terrible work/life Balance, tough targets due to slow Company Growth,
    Work/Life Balance is the big drawback for this company, if you work at Twitter they expect you to commit your life to it. Late Nights, after hour meetings and events that are not mandatory but expected attendance. 10 to 12 hour days are the norm in addition to work expected on the weekends as well. Twitter has excellent benefits but below industry average wages.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back, stop setting impossible to reach targets

    I worked at Twitter full-time

    Pros

    Twitter offers a lot of room for growth as an individual contributor, especially to new software engineers that are capable of executing projects independently. Most employees are friendly, and the company benefits and perks are great.

    Cons

    There's a lack of process around interviewing new candidates, and the company is still struggling to nail down a strategy for reviewing employee performance. Both of these issues cause management and technical talent to vary greatly from team to team.
