    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Most powerful engineering force in the world
    - Potential for individual impact enormous
    - Incredible people and data; good tools
    - Good employer - regards employees highly, cares and nurtures for them
    - Good pay, perks galore
    - Relatively light on politics considering size and breadth
    - All around a fun environment

    Cons

    - Could be better organized; duplicate or abandoned work is not uncommon
    - Little focus on longer term research
    - Work is intense, work/life balance achievable but not easy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need a better focus on real research with longer horizon than immediate application to production. In addition to adding value to the company in the long term, good research will also improve our relationship with the academia/research community and attract top talent from there.

    Internal and inter-departamental communication should be improved to foster discoverability and applicability of tools and work done in various parts of the company.
