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

Pros

I joined facebook coming from 8 years in the Financial Services industry. Wow, what a world of difference. 2 biggest pros come to mind:

- Openness. Do you have an issue with a colleague or something facebook is doing? No problem. Take care of it. Facebook encourages its employees to be open and give feedback for things they think should be improved.

- Do you want to see your impact on 1 billion users? Come to facebook. Although I'm not in engineering, I work with a lot of software engineers, including interns, who constantly talk about the things they work on and how they love showing these off to their friends and family.

Cons

- Being 7 months new, I am still in the process of thinking of areas of improvement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Continue the openness that we have at the company. We love hearing your ideas for the future!

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

    Pros

    - Moves very, very fast. Individual teams are empowered to ship at-will.
      - Very open and transparent. Very few company "secrets". Everyone is up-to-date on what everyone else is doing. This leads to almost non-existent company politics.
      - Great co-workers. Nearly everyone is among the best at what they do, so there is a huge about of trust across orgs.

    Cons

    - Moving really fast sometimes leads to false starts. Engineers must be prepared to pivot and change course from time to time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the feeling of openness and connectedness.

    Pros

    Fun coworkers, interesting problems, make a huge impact on the world.

    Scale, great benefits, opportunity to change the world and really have fun doing it.

    Seriously do you want to work at a company where you don't know what you'll work on? That's insane! Facebook lets you choose what you work on after you get out of bootcamp.

    People are really smart, fun, energetic here.

    Cons

    Too many food options

    Cavities from eating Hi-Chews

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees more with stock
