Current Employee - Product Manager in Menlo Park, CA

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

Pros

The people are amazing. Everyone is so smart and passionate about what they do that you never have negative conversations about someone wanting to get their way just because they want their way.

The culture of getting stuff done as fast as possible and trusting to individual ownership to make it work is also huge.

Cons

You will work a zillion hours and still not be done with your work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be careful about relying on the people you already know and trust too much. The company is getting too big to be run entirely based on trust in a few individuals.
