Current Employee - Data Center Technician IC2  in  Ashburn, VA
Current Employee - Data Center Technician IC2 in Ashburn, VA

I have been working at Facebook as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

The best reason that I can think of personally is that it has afforded me the opportunity to go from the install side of IT. To understanding the process for diagnostic methods of troubleshooting data center equipment. There is a wealth of knowledge that I have access to within the Data Centers (Asburn, Va.) and the Facebook Family.

Cons

A downside would be not wanting to work for or with the Facebook Family.

    Pros

    The learning opportunity at Facebook is huge. You have so many resources available to you. For new grads, you have the opportunity to treat Facebook like a pseudo-grad-school. The people are awesome and the perks make you comfortable.

    Cons

    Salaries are low. People are mainly driven by passion here, but once they reach a certain skill level they leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More incentive to keep people around would be good.

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

    Pros

    Strong entrepreneurial culture that fosters independence and proactivity. This translates in small talented teams that can makes things happen. And funnily it's a very open and connected organization, no red tape in sight. Management truly values longterm over short term, and proves they do by not being afraid of changing their strategies whenever circumstances change.

    Cons

    The proactivity and independence are required to stay on track and focussed in such an understaffed and fast moving company.
