    Current Employee - Data Center Technician IC2 in Ashburn, VA

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

    Pros

    The best reason that I can think of personally is that it has afforded me the opportunity to go from the install side of IT. To understanding the process for diagnostic methods of troubleshooting data center equipment. There is a wealth of knowledge that I have access to within the Data Centers (Asburn, Va.) and the Facebook Family.

    Cons

    A downside would be not wanting to work for or with the Facebook Family.

    Pros

    The learning opportunity at Facebook is huge. You have so many resources available to you. For new grads, you have the opportunity to treat Facebook like a pseudo-grad-school. The people are awesome and the perks make you comfortable.

    Cons

    Salaries are low. People are mainly driven by passion here, but once they reach a certain skill level they leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More incentive to keep people around would be good.
