I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than an year)

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

    It is an amazing place. The new HQ is gorgeous and huge.

    You get to make whatever you want and launch it to a billion people.

    Cons

    It can be a little distracting to be required to use Facebook at work.

    I've never worked for another large company, but I think it's better than most. Allocation process took a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vision is great, but also considering new ideas can be useful.
