      I worked at Twitter full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Free food, gym subsidies, economy travel, etc. Easy place to come up with new ideas by locking yourself away and doing your own work.

      Cons

      A scattered and often changing vision. Filled with Oxbridge types and middle class snobs that make it difficult to be a foreigner without a lot of condescension.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on product, less on intra-office romance.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Twitter full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great offices and location. Free food and beverages and top equipment. Flexible working and good amount of time off encouraged.

      Cons

      Poor management and leadership within local offices. Remote offices didn't work well and there was a lot of confusion about priorities and timelines. Poor hiring choices didn't help the demotivated workforce. Projects in London not challenging and no new larger projects were brought in to engineer and run.

      Advice to Management

      Listen more to the longer standing employees.

      I worked at Twitter for more than 3 years

      Pros

      The people make it. There aren't too many teams, but the ones that are there are impactful running major company priorities. It has a small company vibe, and is generally a pleasure to go into the office each day. The product is great and all sections of the UK office from Sales, Media Partnerships, Engineering, are passionate about the company.

      Cons

      Working with San Francisco is a drag and can mean late nights at the office. The place can feel a bit disorganised too. The company grew quickly with the expectation that lots of stuff that was poorly designed/architected/written would be fixed as the company grew, but now isn't being focused on because there isn't the staff. This can seem surprising, but really is a bit of an opportunity - there is low hanging fruit...

      Advice to Management

      Invest in the UK office and put more design, engineering and product teams there.

      Pros

      Great people, great company, excellent atmosphere and a very welcoming and friendly culture. All this makes it a great place to work.

      Cons

      No pension plan offered which is a real shame. It doesn't help that the stock price has seen better days either.

      Advice to Management

      Really need a company pension plan. This would complete a wide ranging and attractive benefits plan which should help recruit the best talent.

      Pros

      For a company that hasn't turned a profit it sure knows how to spend money. Food. Location.

      Cons

      The person that talks the most or causes the most arguments isn't always right. Suspicious of new people. Lonely island.

      Advice to Management

      Take control of bullying and condescension and good product ideas will flow, be built, etc.
