Current Employee - Partnerships in London, England (UK)

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

Pros

Work Flexibility: you have a work description, but you can basically do what you want
Work environment: you work with the smartest people of the industry, tackling the biggest problem of recents years (connecting 1 billion people together)
Work culture: perks, couches, free food etc.

Cons

Facebook becomes your work, you don't open it in evenings or weekends anymore

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hiring is the single most important thing for Facebook. True in the engineering department, but also true in the sales team. I feel this rule isn't applied well enough in sales: I keep asking myself how some people got hired here.

    Current Employee - Engineering Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Hackathons
    - Flexibility in choosing how you approach a project, technical leadership opportunities
    - Benefits - Free food, dry cleaning, etc
    - Open management, Q&As with Zuck every friday are un-matched in the industry.

    Cons

    - Noisy open floor plan - Works for some, doesn't for others. The good news is, with some effort, you can get put in a corner if you want some quiet area to hack in. You could always just lock yourself in a meeting room.

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

    Pros

    FB is a company built around the hacker culture and it shows in numerous ways. You're valued for your work and for getting things done.

    Cons

    The pace is hectic and churn is always on the verge of drowning you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company grows commit some resources towards also getting some semblance of order and documentation before everyone spends most of his time just asking everyone else one tidbit at a time.
