Pros

I've worked at 5 different companies before here, from investment banking, CPGs, to 3 other tech companies and nothing beats this. People are amazing not to mention wicked smart. You'll be surrounded by the most talented people in the world all with a mission to change the world.

Cons

Extremely difficult to get in given number of application submitted and competition. Also the company tries to stay small so limited job openings. Work can get stressful but that's because there aren't enough people internally to do the stuff that needs to get done. If you don't know how to prioritize you should seek other large tech companies.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing and try to promote from within. Outside hires bring a complete different management flavor.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    good perks, great environment. high respect for engineers and high salaries. you can develop your ideas and own your project

    Cons

    you need to be prepared to work hard and compete with very smart people. unstable decisions at the management level.

    Advice to Management

    lack of bureaucracy and the flat friendly organization sometimes has a downside that a lot of agreements and decisions are verbal and unofficial. which lead to unstable decisions. changes in design and waste of effort.

    Facebook is the best place I have worked in my 12 years in tech.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The ability to take an idea and turn it into a reality without the need for level after level of approval. Only really massive changes require any significant oversight at all. People are expected and trusted to do good things for the company. Projects are launched quickly, and road map cycles are very fluid. there is extreme urgency without the need for hard deadlines

    Cons

    the main downside is the long hours, but, truthfully it is fun, so I don't really mind that much.

    Advice to Management

    Keep empowering folks to do the right things.
