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

    Pros

    Still feels like a startup, you have all kinds of tech chalenges (which is really great for engineers) and the company has a very good atmosphere. The perks are very good and I feel great to wake up every day knowing that the work I do will have a huge impact to a lot of people.

    Cons

    Media can be harsh sometimes and this makes you feel not so good. But once you understand that it comes in "waves" you start to deal better with it.

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

    Pros

    Incredibly smart coworkers
    Very interesting problems of scale to work on
    Very flat corporate structure - anyone can have an impact
    Extremely open culture
    Amazing free food and great campus

    Cons

    Long hours are the norm
    Can be very high-pressure around deadlines or when something goes wrong
    Back-end work generally viewed as less glamorous than front-end work
    Everyone outside the company always asks about the stock price

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job and try not to change the culture
