Pros

The internship program is great! I learned so much! Pay is great. Culture is awesome. Corporate housing is easy and nice.

Cons

You're pretty much thrown into the fire immediately. But I think they do that on purpose to see who can take it. It's VERY fast paced. You're expected to learn quickly and fairly independently (although you should know when to ask for help!), which isn't for everyone Expect to spend 50-60 hours a week at work. BUT, it doesn't really feel like work.

    Pros

    - Fast paced learning - Freedom to work on what interests you - You can make big impact - Everything based on merit and performance, no politics - openness in culture - perks are awesome

    Cons

    - learning might get skewed towards internal tools, FB-specific libraries of popular languages, etc - a little chance of learning about the complete stack, more likely to work on a particular component of a bigger project/product

    Pros

    Great campus, great food, lots of really smart people! Very flexible environment. Lots of on campus events and opportunities to participate in fun activities. If you have an idea, no one will get in your way to try to implement it!

    Cons

    Slowly starting to get more corporate as more "upper management" people join from other firms and try to change the startup culture.
