    Former Intern - Software Development Engineer Intern in Menlo Park, CA
    Former Intern - Software Development Engineer Intern in Menlo Park, CA

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

    Pros

    - competitive salary,
    - nice area,
    - you can contribute any part of their system,
    - free food, laundry etc.

    Cons

    - open space,
    - you will be most effective if you work as everyone (11am - 20pm) - I personally hated it,
    - you could feel that they encourage you to literally live there - you could occasionally hear about people who were doing that,
    - they encourage to being gay - I felt like it were more normal to be gay than not,
    - their main motto "be open" is not so open for negative opinions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not ask people what they feel about something if you only expect positive opinions.

    Lots of hype, substance is lacking.

    Former Employee - Network Engineer in Menlo Park, CA

    I worked at Facebook full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging problems in scope and scale to solve.
    Money for projects is essentially unlimited. Buy the best of everything.

    Cons

    Politics and poor leadership in the mid-management levels.
    Many mediocre co-workers that can't pull their weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of your Managers and Directors are not high caliber or top notch.
    Set a higher bar and weed out your poor quality directors.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
