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

Pros

- High impact on a product that is used by 900M+ people every month.
- Awesome environment with highly skilled coworkers.
- Great culture, focus on getting stuff done.
- Awesome food.
- Great benefits and perks.
- Engineering bootcamp, which is the best way to introduce the new hires to the culture and to teach how stuff works at Facebook.

Cons

- Too much food can get you fat.
- Ripstiks can hurt sometimes.
- The first days of work can be very hard. They can be very fun too, though.

    Pros

    * Intellectually challenging, stimulating work
    * I own my work stream and for the most part decide what is most important
    * Managers have a "hands-off" philosophy as long as you perform well, which is absolutely awesome
    * Tons of opportunities to develop technical, communication and other skills
    * Perks, perks, perks!

    Cons

    * too much cool stuff to do that I don't have time to do it all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't listen to wall street and keep doing what you are doing
