    Great focus on mission, skimping on some of the fundamentals

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company's focus on mission is extraordinary. At every level of the company (at least on the technical side), the emphasis is overwhelmingly on supporting its brilliant engineers in delivering on tools that move to company forward in its deeply-felt goal of making the world more open and connected. There is an absolute minimum of bureaucratic crap. Compensation is generous and the perks are preposterous - well more than I want or need, really, but hey, if they're going to provide nearly free dry cleaning, I guess I'll use it.

    Cons

    Some of the mid-level management don't seem to know what they're doing - many/most of them are technical managers, and don't necessarily know how to organize, direct or motivate people. The biannual employee calibration cycle is absurdly excessive in scope, and literally absorbs managers' attention for 3-4 months out of the year. The internal organization is largely ad hoc and sorely missing in some of the fundamentals that would help the company scale more effectively - this is a consequence of the commitment to light structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not every technical problem can be solved by a hackathon or its equivalent. Sometimes changes in culture and attitude are needed, and getting everyone in a room for a day or a week to focus intensively on solving an issue does not work for many kinds of problems.
