    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at Facebook full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lot of independence in choosing your projects, recognition for innovation, complex problems, daily code pushes to production, awesome peers.

    Cons

    Constant inflow into upper management chain from other companies, so harder to move up the ladder if you're not on a crucial project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize engineering contributions in non-product areas for promotion as well.

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

    Pros

    1. Great benefits and perks
    2. Passionate and dedicated employees
    3. Fun and exciting environment

    Cons

    1. No career growth and lack of internal career paths
    2. Low compensation
    3. Lots of politics within the company (many ex-Yahoos and AOL employees are in management)
    4. Bad culture and habits brought in from ex-Yahoos and AOL employees are making a big negative impact on culture and morale at the company
    5. Mark Zuckerberg, aka Zuck has received good ratings in the past but of late he has been very distracted and not focused on how the company is run internally, he should own it and step up by making management changes to course correct the ship before it becomes another AOL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something to address the low compensation issues and morale/culture issues within the company, make changes to management particularly in the engineering and sales organizations since the same traits that they had at Yahoo and AOL are starting to show at Facebook as well.
