    Current Employee - Legal Triage Technician in Menlo Park, CA

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

    Pros

    Free food. Free transportation. Get to put Facebook on your resume. Casual work attire.

    Cons

    If you are a CONTRACTOR you will be treated like a second class citizen, you will have no voice. Will not be considered for advancement, even if there are positions available. Actual employees work less than the contractors. FB hires contractors to do work that will be constantly needed, front desk, kitchen staff, IT Help Desk to name a few. It's as if they don't want the "help" to be officially apart of their team. The FB you see online is not the same as in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have more than enough money. Hire people and give them job security. Especially for people that are doing jobs that won't be going away. 2+ years as a "contractor"......Give me a break!

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I never knew a company could move so fast and get so much done while still kind of being out of control. The norm wasn't to follow a policy or to go by the book, but instead to continually innovate and ask why we do things the way we do. I was constantly challenged by the high caliber of my peers around me. I worry that I may never find such a great work environment again.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is great at Facebook, IF your entire life is Facebook. The lines begin to blur fairly early on between personal and work. This probably isn't a problem for the majority of early 20 somethings working at FB, but I found it challenging as a 30 something with kids.
