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

Pros

As titled. Also, the company is still growing pretty fast, so there is plenty of opportunities to make big impact.

Cons

Sometimes, people compete too much internally, which could be put stress on some people. The infrastructure still needs some work to be more robust.

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

    Pros

    Perks, free and delicious food, free other stuff, 21 days vacation, good for resume.
    Free schedule, nice office, gym onsite etc.

    Cons

    They say they're chaotic. IMO, it's a too fancy word for that. I would say that the code-base is a mess. The corporate value "move fast and break things" is understood too literally by some engineers. That's why the product is very unstable and the UI beyond two most frequently used pages is clunky. The job is boring. Things gets done extremely slow and the quality is very far from being perfect.
    Too much of narcissism (we're building an awesome product, we provide really sick user experience, we're ninjas, batmans and supermans etc. etc. etc.). Maybe it's good for some people, but not for me.

    I worked at Facebook as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    - Very open culture, very little secrecy
    - Lots of benefits (free food, gym, unlimited snacks, etc)
    - Can easily make an impact as the company is still pretty small

    Cons

    - Intern management was not as great.
    - Won't always get the project that matches your current interests, but it is impactful and challenging nonetheless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the culture.
