    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Menlo Park, CA

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Even after 4.5 years, the work is inspiring and the new challenges are exciting. Still the smartest employees in the business with a broad view of the world, which allows the company to serve many different cultures.

    Cons

    Miss the small company atmosphere of knowing everyone and getting down and dirty on multiple projects at once.

    Former Employee - User Operations Specialist in Menlo Park, CA

    I worked at Facebook full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Innovative, hard-working, fast paced, friendly, fun, challenging work environment

    Cons

    Depending on department, there are a lot of cliques. Being close friends with employees in the company is definitely a huge plus to advance in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain subjective. Put aside friendships when evaluating people.

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

    Pros

    The company is run well. I don't feel over-managed and I have a clear view of the company's objectives and goals. Pretty cool perks, even with working in a remote location.

    Cons

    Working in a remote location makes it difficult for career advancement. A lot of meetings, and less action. The company has grown very large and decision making is a slower process.

    Pros

    The campus is insane, great place to be, delicious food, positive environment overall. Young team overall, great benefits.

    Cons

    The company has grown a lot and with that came politics and an unusual (at least for me) level of competitiveness amongst colleagues. Constant re-orgs make it a little difficult to grow, as you end up changing managers all the time and you role changes as well. The advertising product is far from stable and they keep changing everything all the time, which confuses the team and the marketplace (and makes the sales process more challenging).

    It's a rocky ride

    Pros

    You get to meet a lot of really smart people. Also, there are a lot of benefits and there's more coming.

    Cons

    The company is growing big really fast. If you aren't in product teams, it's hard to get much love and as the size increases this is more apparent.
    It's not a small company anymore and over the time I was here, I have seen the start up culture slowly mature.
