Facebook, a great place to work

Pros

It's a great place where the company is small enough for you to make a difference, but the product is used by millions. It's great to work on something you love using every day. The hours are flexible, and the package is great- free gourmet food is served 3 meals a day. You really learn a lot, since you get thrown into the mix quite quickly. Also, the people at the company happen to be extraordinarily smart and pretty passionate.

Cons

You can work a lot right before a project gets shipped, but that's the case with a lot of engineering jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good job.

    Facebook is fun and cool, but not always an environment that encourages growth.

    Pros

    It is one of the fast growing company and things can move very fast. You could be doing different things if you happen to be at the right place at the right time.

    Cons

    Less organization. Growing pain. Management needs to become mature.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is getting too big to let it grow freely. We need a bit more organization now.
