    Current Employee - Research Scientist in Menlo Park, CA
    Current Employee - Research Scientist in Menlo Park, CA

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) You own your own career: choose a team and a project; switch teams when you're saturated; learn any skill you need.
    2) Very little process and bureaucracy for a company of this size.
    3) Hackathons.

    Cons

    1) You own your own career, which also means you have to be the one focusing on impact (and ensure it's visible) to progress.

    2) The intense focus on impact can sometimes mean that longer-term, exploratory projects are harder to initiate, justify, and eventually get recognized for. Facebook is growing to the scale where a small team focused on "failing more often" (that is, crazier projects) would be beneficial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The growing scale means that the review process starts to be more political, as upper management calibrates people the barely know. Monetary bonuses for performance, as is now becoming well known, are a poor motivator. Let's go back to a more recognition-based culture.
