Pros

Facebook is a true mission-driven company. Many companies pay lip service to their mission, but Facebook lives it and breathes it everyday. Zuck is totally committed to the mission of the company, leads by example, and is one of the most visionary people in our industry. The culture at Facebook is very strong, and the people here are incredibly smart and driven. We're working on huge, important problems in the world, and it's fun to come to work everyday.

Cons

None. I love everything about this company.

Advice to Management

Stay true to the mission and continue to focus on the long-term.

    Pros

    You work with incredibly smart people on cutting edge technology.
    It's relatively easy to ship. Not too much process.
    Whatever you ship will likely impact the lives of hundreds of millions of people.
    It's easy to switch teams so you can always focus on your passion.

    Cons

    Some of the managers aren't very good. I think we could do better at manager training.
    Working with amazing people means that you may not stand out as much as you would at a less awesome company.
    The culture can be uber aggressive. Some people take that to the point of being mean. Managers don't care if engineers are huge jerks, as long as they are good.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to ensure that managers are good.
    I'd love to see the aggressive culture go away or at least not be enshrined as a value.
