I have been working at Facebook full-time

Pros

Great brand name, if you need one on your resume

Cons

-Highly politicized working environment means 50% of your time on the job is spent posturing. -Lots of opportunity to move laterally; not a lot of room to grow. -Dramatic pay imbalance seems unfair. Engineers sometimes get 40x the equity compensation as non-engineer hires. -Investment-banker hours without investment-banker pay.

Advice to Management

Be more involved in managing departments other than engineering.

    I have been working at Facebook (More than a 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.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Choosing your own product team to work with - Free food, medical plan, 401K, CalTrain passes, along with many other perks of a big tech company - Company culture - Strong management with a strong philosophy - Beautiful campus

    Cons

    - Expanding rapidly, so it could lose some of the "startup" feel

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and try to minimize the corporate feeling
