Disappointing, boring.

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Menlo Park, CA

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

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

ConsThey 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.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo advise

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
