    I have been working at Twitter full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Dorsey has done a lot of great work - clear vision for the long term future, great culture with a true emphasis on employee happiness, diversity and work-life balance. Good money & perks. Interesting work, smart and nice colleagues. Startup vibe in a corporate structure. The company is financially solid even though it sucks at communicating with Wall Street.

    Cons

    Office cliques & groupthink. Middle management ranges from OK to mediocre, especially in the US. Outdated adtech makes life harder if you work with clients. Harder to make an impact if you're not in SF or NY. Wall Street doesn't like Twitter and Dorsey's frequent miscommunications don't help.
