    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Just a disclaimer to start with: I work in Engineering, and so my particular perspective on the pros and cons will be predominantly Engineering biased.

    By far the biggest Pro is that Facebook Engineering honestly and genuinely believe that it is super important that you are working on something that you are passionate about, and so we do our utmost to ensure that engineers have the opportunity to sample a wide range of the many options available to them, not only when they're new to Facebook during Bootcamp, but also throughout their time at Facebook. We do this because we strongly believe that people will do their best work when they are working on something they are truly passionate about. This is, for example, one of the driving forces behind hackathons. There is very little of the kingdom building one sees at other companies, and individual career advancement is always placed ahead of team stability. Unlike our fellow engineers over at the Chocolate Factory in Mountain View, where engineers are mostly assigned to teams, we actively encourage our engineers to seek out places and teams where they will have the highest potential to make an impact.

    Cons

    The food. OMG the food. The food is friggin amazing. This is not mass-catering by any stretch of the imagination, but rather a huge selection of the finest gourmet food. It is truly difficult to *not* gain weight working here.

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

    Pros

    Working at Facebook has been and still is the most amazing experience, for me. Why? Because,

    - The people that work here are extremely bright and driven
    - The work environment is incredibly open and supportive. If you want to get something done but need help or input from a different team, you will get it
    - You have the freedom to focus on what you feel will have the highest impact. Of course, you still need to do you core job though
    - The work culture is truly flexible

    These things may not be the most important points for you but after having worked in the voluntary sector (NPO), public sector (Army and UN), and the private sector (Banking) they are the most important to me. And from my experience separates Facebook from 99% of all work places.

    Cons

    If your require a lot of prescriptive guidance (step by step instructions), don't like dynamic work environments, and are lethargic when it comes to your work, this is not the best place to work at.
