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

    Pros

    I loved the atmosphere, the working method and the results of our work. My team was a very professional and talented one. You also get the chance to work on different projects helping other teams on specific things that might require someone like you. You get amazing benefits as well!

    Cons

    Well I got called redundant which made the experience bittersweet but the time spent there was great.

    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.

    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.

    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 all over the place and a chance to be impactful. There is something said of the company that one chooses "either the legacy system, or the system that hasn't been productionized used yet".

    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.
