    The best place in the world to work - if you could call it work (its more of a lifestyle).

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

    Pros

    This is the best place in the world to be. Environment is all about engineers. Benefits, management, direction, culture - all very very positive items about the company. Keep up the great work Mark!!!!!!!

    Cons

    Not much negative. I find myself wanting to come to work and participate. Sometimes, I don't want to leave... So oddly, it can make for a long day sometimes.

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

    Pros

    Everyone there has an opportunity to make an impact. Company moves very fast and prides itself on running lean. This means autonomy and opportunity for almost every employee.

    Cons

    Intense environment is not for everyone. Mission driven company means many decisions are made based on relevance back to product and mission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Brag a little more: Be more active in publicly explaining your business model. You can talk publicly about how well you're doing while at the same time remaining coy and humble.

    Avoid Bureaucracy and Nepotism: Remember to move fast and don't let your size get in the way, it started to happen a little bit. And Don't promote people based on one person's personal goal (i.e. Sheryl's mission to help women) - it's like internet nepotism.
