Best place I've worked.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsBenefits are generous (food, laundry, commuter shuttles, etc). Most coworkers were truly intelligent, friendly and hard-working. Focus on efficiency, depending on the team. No emphasis on face time. Little politics given the current size of the company though they exist.

ConsGetting larger and beginning to exhibit large company characteristics: moving slower, less outstanding new hires, great folks leaving. Focus on retention didn't seem to be there, but then again, I left.

Advice to Senior ManagementMobile app is slow. Too many new hires. Saw a lot of teams scale very quickly without the work to justify the additional heads.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
