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

Pros

Great Culture, Great benefits and Great people! They take really good care of engineers and have a work culture which allows you to try multiple things.

Cons

It can be slightly stressful at times, but nothing out of the ordinary. The code sometimes needs a bit of cleaning up, which can be a bit annoying.

    Former Contractor - Risk Ops in Austin, TX

    I worked at Facebook as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food, no dress code, downtown location, smart peers, young and fresh as you would expect

    Cons

    treated as a second class citizen, subhuman compared to full time employees, ignored, excluded from team, no potential for career advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop contracting. If you are going to continue to, then just move them all offsite, or in a dark room away from everyone else. At least that one, they will think you treat everyone like that. Its basically slave labor for you, and you would honestly do better to just ask for volunteers if you don't plan on hiring the position full time. At least a volunteer signed up for the abuse. I cannot think of a more demoralizing environment than the one you subject your contractors to.
