the best place to be a software engineer

Engineering Manager (Current Employee)
Menlo Park, CA

Pros- really sharp, passionate co-workers
- blazingly fast ship cycle (new code hits the site *every day*)
- your work helps hundreds of millions of people connect with friends and family
- tremendous discretion over what team to join and what projects to work on
- open, warm, friendly, funny company culture
- awesome perks (never-ending supply of free food, 21 days PTO, 4 months parental leave)

Cons- fast pace sometimes results in bugs
- if you like micromanagement, you probably won't like FB: engineers have a lot of autonomy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
