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

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to choose what you want to work on. Also, the company does its best to ensure you have everything you need to do your job really well. And bunch of very smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Too much ambiguity. if you are someone that expects to be told what to work on and what needs to be done, this ain't the place for you.

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

    Pros

    Everything at Facebook moves incredibly quickly which makes it a very exciting place to be. There are also a ton of smart people there and I feel like I'm constantly learning new things from my coworkers.

    Cons

    People generally work very hard. This is by choice (people are generally excited about what they are working on and trying to ship stuff quickly) but it does mean that there's a fair amount of peer pressure to work hard and it's easy to feel like there's always a little bit more that you could be doing.
