I have been working at Facebook full-time for less than a year

Pros

_Everyone is world-class in everything they do, from PMs to Legal to Engineers who are some of the best around.
_The challenges are huge, the impact is vast
_Anyone can propose ideas and try them out as an experiment, the best experiments will make it out to 1 billion people!
_Free food
_Tons of awesome perks

Cons

_Can be hard to manage work/life balance sometimes, but that's mostly because there isn't enough time in the workday to work on everything I want to work on...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management can sometimes steer the company in another direction too fast which can cause organisational whiplash. Try to plan out a bit farther ahead and have less knee-jerk reactions to change everything all at once.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Menlo Park, CA

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - The culture is very open and honest, and the heavy use of groups internally keeps everyone accountable to others. Company-wide Q&As also keep the management team transparent.
    - The work you do is high impact, and products iterate quickly
    - Hackamonths actively encourage engineers to try a different team occasionally
    - Lots of opportunities to continue learning, like training for iOS and android development

    Cons

    - Work/life balance can be tough, depending on the team. This is up to personal preference though, and many teams (especially those in infrastructure) have more stable projects.
    - Coasting doesn't work here, you always have to be actively improving and not rest on laurels

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People are Awesome.
    They help you grow and a very open-minded and supporting environment
    Great Perk.
    I feel less Politics in career track as long as you gain support and trust from team members.

    Cons

    People are too good and you feel peer pressure in terms of trying to survive from a company where many of the people enjoy and love what they do and are full of passion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the Culture while growing the employees.
