    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Really smart people and company moves incredibly fast. You can have a huge impact in a short amount of time. There is a ton of ownership and it is a pretty flat organization. The benefits at the HQ are great- free food, gym on site, shuttles to work and flexible hours. Mark has a very clear vision for the company and everyone who works here really believes in the mission. It is nice to work at a founder led company with such a strong sense of mission to make the world more open and connected.

    Cons

    Some of the teams are political which can be frustrating. The Menlo Park office is kind of in the middle of nowhere so there aren't any places to run quick errands or grab drinks/food after work without going all the way to downtown Palo Alto.

    Former Employee - I'd Rather Not Say in Menlo Park, CA

    I worked at Facebook as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    An innovative and open culture. Never dull! Always finding new way to improve and better connect the world. Opportunities to get involved and come up with new ideas at "Hacks". Really exciting to work for the leader in this arena. Such a focused, driven, energetic company from the top down. Beautiful, ever-improving campus with fabulous food options, bike riding and running trails, and new amenities arriving every few months.

    Cons

    Some departments are a little "political" and your performance may be overlooked, despite how well you actually perform and are told you perform. Most departments in the company do not operate this way fortunately, but there are a few and performance may be overlooked due to a manager's agenda. Honesty can be an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the playing field level. Keep communication open...it's starting to slip in some departments. Honesty and sincerity need some work.
