    Pros

    Strong entrepreneurial culture that fosters independence and proactivity. This translates in small talented teams that can makes things happen. And funnily it's a very open and connected organization, no red tape in sight. Management truly values longterm over short term, and proves they do by not being afraid of changing their strategies whenever circumstances change.

    Cons

    The proactivity and independence are required to stay on track and focussed in such an understaffed and fast moving company.

    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 Management

    More incentive to keep people around would be good.
