Current Employee - Analyst, User Operations in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- You get to work on pretty much whatever you suggest
- Good benefits

Cons

- Because people get to work on whatever they feel like there are a lot of resources that are wasted
- There is a lot of core work. Eg. You have to get through x amounts of requests from users per days

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There does not seem to be any plan as to where or how anybody can make a career on Facebook, in particular in User Operations in Dublin as the management team seems to not have put much thought into career development.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    Great perks, reasonable degree of autonomy, a culture of moving fast.

    Cons

    Unreasonable organizational walls. Like someone said, "sales trumps ops, marketing trumps sales, product trumps marketing and engineering trumps product." while these decision making hierarchies are OK in some contexts, they are quite unreasonable in most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus carefully on where decision making sits. There is too much centralization today.

    I have been working at Facebook

    Pros

    Everyone is relied upon and valued. They expect you to be the best, which also evokes the best from you.

    Cons

    Even though they preach about having work-life balance, it is very difficult to with the amount of work needed. However, this applies to all companies that aim to run as efficiently as Facebook does.
