    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 Management

    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.

    Cons

    Roadmap changes very fast, It is not very transparent how and on what basis the features get implemented and selected. Food here is very random, basically every thing here is "Fusion" so that pretty much sum up you are on Mercy of Chefs mood on what is the next stuff he will mix :-), Advice to Chef , relook at demographics it has changes since you were hired!!! ( Clue: more chinese and indian people here who are not fascinated by Fusions )
