    I worked at Facebook as an intern (less than an 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 (more than an year)

    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.
