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

Pros

High responsibilities from day one. High powers from day one. The company lives up to its motto of move fast and don't be afraid.

Cons

Hard core environment, if you don't deal well with extra responsibility and require strong leadership instead of autonomy you probably won't have the best time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the hacker culture, beware process and corporate behavior. Always do the right thing for the world.

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

    Pros

    Facebook is an excellent place to work. The job is interesting and challenging, the co-workers are vibrant and brilliant and the perks are fantastic. I am excited to go to work everyday and very enthusiastic about my future which wasn't the case at my old job. The work, the location, the food, the perks and the co-workers make this the best place to work that I can imagine.

    Cons

    This job can keep you busy, but if you love what you do that's not necessarily a downside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep this company as awesome as it is now while you continue to expand.
