I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (less than an 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.

    Former Employee - Intern in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Facebook as an intern (less than an 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.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are not only super-smart, but they're also super-fun and relatively normal people. The job comes with a built in social life, if you want it. That makes it extremely easy for those who move to the Bay Area without knowing many people.

    Cons

    Explosive growth and rapid hiring makes it sometime feel like a ton of people are getting hired into the spaces where you think you'd be promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step our press game up. If we're confident our products are the best they can be, then we shouldn't keep having PR trouble.
