Current Employee - Software Engineer in Menlo Park, CA

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

Pros

- Huge impact from day one - I got to own pretty large projects almost as soon as I joined, and the amount of trust placed in employees even from the first few weeks in bootcamp is amazing.
- Exciting work environment, I work with some of the very best people I've met in the business every day
- Real start-up feel and anxious to keep it that way. There's a lot of attention paid to the culture of the company
- Things really do move fast. It's really motivating to see the results of your efforts get adopted so quickly
- Great support from management
- Fun @ work, many great perks. Lots of free food, and a gym to work it all off.

Cons

High workload mean that you have to be pretty motivated to enjoy it. On the flip side that's mostly self-driven - I certainly end up working a lot not because I'm pushed to but because I want to see my project succeed.

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

    Pros

    + Smart/energetic people around you to make yourself better
    + Relative flat management for a company at this size
    + Projects that influence people
    + Probably the best café in all IT companies at the moment. Thomas Keller, Gary Danko theme, etc.
    + Work for fun. You can still keep a life if you are good at what you are doing. :)

    Cons

    - None I can think of at the moment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the open conversation. Keep focused. Keep being an engineering driven company.
