    A good place to be

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Menlo Park, CA

    Pros- Fast paced learning
    - Freedom to work on what interests you
    - You can make big impact
    - Everything based on merit and performance, no politics
    - openness in culture
    - perks are awesome

    Cons- learning might get skewed towards internal tools, FB-specific libraries of popular languages, etc
    - a little chance of learning about the complete stack, more likely to work on a particular component of a bigger project/product

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
