Pros

Facebook's "move fast and break things" culture avoids assigning blame for reasonable mistakes, which is a wonderful thing. Teams actively avoid separating creation and responsibility, so you are actually responsible for code that you wrote. The engineers that I get to work with are amazingly skilled and good coworkers

Cons

Tools and APIs change, and old systems are actually deprecated and removed, so part of the process of moving forward goes toward staying in place

Advice to Management

Get product and infrastructure teams in the same room with food and drinks more often
