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

Pros

It is good to work here with the smartest people in San Francisco bay area. The company is always moving fast.

Cons

Sometimes it is moving too fast. The food in cafe can be better, but the snacks in micro-kitten are really good.

    Pros

    - you can choose your team, and, later, you can change it;
    - the company is a significant contributor to open source;
    - there are lots of smart people around you;
    - plenty of perks (great and varied food, company shuttles, public transportation, bike repair, laundry & dry cleaning, banking, ...)
    - powerful hardware to develop on

    Cons

    - no 401(k) matching;
    - some teams work around the clock;
    - things are constantly changing in the development process;
    - preference for "generalists", who know a little bit of everything and nothing particularly well; it might be hard for "specialists" to find a good team that favors depth vs breadth
