    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    - No need to explain to family or friends what your company does
    - No guilt in being obsessed with the social network
    - Opportunities to learn lots of things
    - Good for new grads or someone who is starting his career from scratch

    Cons

    - Lots of land grabbing and empire building.
    - Engineers have very little control on the directions of their projects, nor on their career path.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    Peers are pretty spectacular, food is great

    Cons

    Can feel red tape of growing into a bigger corporation creeping in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay nimble, don't be afraid to make mistakes even as we grow bigger.
