Pros

You get work with some of the smartest people in Silicon Valley as well as in our offices around the world. The flexible work structure ensures people are always working on highly levered tasks they're excited about.

Cons

Working at a really fast pace also means you're forced to make sacrifices in order to get a product out the door.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    The amount of freedom you get as an engineer is unlike anything I've seen. We have a culture that while going fast to build new things, strives to improve the codebase and overall code quality.

    Cons

    There are still a lot of bugs in the code base. Some employees are quite harsh in their review of other people's work, but I'm willing to write this off to people wanting everyone else to be excellent.

    I worked at Facebook full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fast moving company. Good compensation. One of the most recognizable companies in the world.

    Cons

    Family work life balance can be a little tough for people with actual family. Open table work environment can be counter-productive for engineers. Too much noise and visual distraction is quite negative for a positive work flow. Seems to suit new college graduates since it looks more like college computer lab and a mature/productive workplace design.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a work place with more privacy.
