I worked at Facebook as an intern for less than a year

Pros

* Lots of access to intelligent, experienced FTEs
* Great benefits, including shuttles to work, daily meals, and free laundry service
* Very open culture, with a lot of trust given to new employees and interns alike
* Able to innovate and have impact regardless of tenure or position

Cons

* Interns mostly stick to their team, so for internships which team you get can be very crucial in defining your experience. This can be make or break for some interns, since some teams have unreasonable expectations or just don't mesh well with their interns.
* At least one other intern I knew complained that some teams seemed "easier" in terms of receiving a full time offer than others.

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

    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
