    Pros

    There are still some amazingly smart people to work with and the benefits are top notch.

    Cons

    Bringing Jack back to run both Twitter and Square was a mistake. An experienced CEO required to bring back the company from certain doom.

    Advice to Management

    Twitter need experience and leadership. Not the same old thing.

    - free food
    - good, not great, benefits
    - a public platform
    - comfortable offices
    - coworkers are passionate about the company

    Cons

    - leadership spends more time reflecting on when they worked at Google than trying to improve Twitter
    - leadership is slow to respond to change; almost resistant to it

    Advice to Management

    Rely less on consensus and more on leading through what is a turbulent and unsettling period for employees. Make hard decisions. Work smarter, not harder; we're beginning to value the appearance of long hours even though very little is getting done.
