Approves of CEO

I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Being surrounded by great minds who always strive for to better themselves Flexibility and Freedom to fix/work on the things you want to work on. Free food doesn't hurt either - and it is GOOD food.

Cons

my only real complaint is that you sometimes reviewed solely based on the impact your work has rather than the quality.

Advice to Management

See the cons.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You're treated like a human being. You're well-fed. The corporate structure is designed so you can float to where you think you can do the best work with minimal hassle. Acquiring needed equipment is low friction. Above all, we believe in what we're doing.

    Cons

    Base salary is a little below comparable companies. Young employee base can sometimes lack tact or manners. High density office plan presents parking issues.

    Advice to Management

    Scaling to tens of thousands of employees is the biggest threat to the company. Keep everyone focused and keep teams small and nimble.

    I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great, open work atmosphere, incredible benefits (the food is incredible), wonderful coworkers, many opportunities for professional and personal growth. Lots of room for lateral growth and learning new skills on the job. Employees are extremely friendly and focused on cultivating a social work environment.

    Cons

    This isn't really a con, but positions at FB require the ability to work very independently. If you aren't a person who loves creating and completing projects to high standards without a lot of management, this probably isn't a good place for you.
