I worked at Facebook

Pros

You get to work on cool stuff with cool people. No one cares when you come into work as long as you're getting stuff done. Awesome benefits.

Cons

They expect you do do a lot of work. I would say "long hours", but they never actually ask you to work long hours - they just ask you get get enough stuff done that, unless you're some kind of savant, you'll have to work long hours to meet their expectations.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    - No need to explain to family or friends what your company does
    - No guilt in being obsessed with the social network
    - Opportunities to learn lots of things
    - Good for new grads or someone who is starting his career from scratch

    Cons

    - Lots of land grabbing and empire building.
    - Engineers have very little control on the directions of their projects, nor on their career path.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
