Seriously an amazing place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at Facebook

Pros* Incredibly smart and intensely motivated peers.
* Immense opportunity. There a ton of growth and a lot of things that can be done. People with initiative do really well here.
* The world sees the impact of what you're working on. All my friends and family use the product and it's rewarding to work on something that keeps us all connected.
* Amazing food. We get breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner served up by the best chefs around. Menus change daily and my favorite to date has been the Willy Wonka themed lunch menu. Sushi day is legit too.
* Flexible work schedules. 9 to 5 is dead, work the times that best work for you and your job.
* Fun (Game Day, random toga party, RipStiks, cool people, etc.)

ConsThere's some growing pains because of the fast company growth and the office can get a bit noisy at times. My last job was at Google and I have to say that facebook is a far better place to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep being open and transparent to employees. This is one of the best parts about working at facebook and it's important that employees all are informed of why we're doing things the way we're doing them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
