Pros

Facebook is full of extremely capable and smart people. The lines are very short, and it's easy to get a hold of the right person to talk to on any topic. There's no red tape, so it's really up to you to have a big impact on the product and the world. People who make a big impact are recognized and rewarded, regardless of their job title or level of experience. The company's leadership truly believes in Facebook's mission to make the world more open and connected. Teams are small and have a lot of autonomy, and it's amazing to see how much of a difference a single person can make at this place.

Cons

The downside having so much going on all at once is that it takes energy and discipline to stay focused on those things that matter most. You need to embrace this challenge to get the most out of your experience.

    Pros

    The engineers here are all at the top of the field. They could work anywhere. Everyone I've worked with has all the magic engineer powers: really smart, good at getting stuff done, and fun to be around. The company knows it, and so there's not much red tape on the engineering side. It's up to each person not to break the push or launch a feature too fast. It's refreshing.

    Cons

    Not a small company anymore.

    Advice to Management

    The hiring bar has been very high as long as I've been around. Let's keep it there.

    Overly focused on engineers, cut-throat
