    A great place to work, especially if you want to stretch your brain.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Sure, there are perks like the food (it's really that good), the gym, etc. But the best reasons to work here are the people, the scale (both technical and impact), and the way management prioritizes well beyond short-term returns.

    Cons

    The location isn't particularly convenient, but as the campus completes construction that seems to be less of an issue. This stage in the press cycle isn't partcularly fun, but that will pass.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the communications open - it makes such a difference as we grow.

    Pros

    Incredibly smart coworkers
    Very interesting problems of scale to work on

    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
