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

Pros

- Amazing work environment (meritocracy, smart people, great technologies, ...)
- Great perks (food, snacks, health insurance, gym benefit, laundry, ...)
- Very little corporate overhead.
- Feels very much like a startup, despite being over 8 years old.

Cons

- Time-sink: it's easy to neglect everything that's not work related.
- Decent salary but nothing extraordinary.

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