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

Pros

The campus is beautiful. The work is immediately gratifying, as you're working on the website/app that literally over a billion people use the world over. The people are great, the food is free and incredible, and the benefits and perks in general are flat out impeccable. The work is challenging, and you're always growing. This place definitely has got many, many strengths.

Cons

The work-life balance can be difficult. You're judged by the amount of work you put out, which is fair, but to keep up you may need to regularly work 10 hours per day. I'd often see people put in even more hours each day. But then again, if you're incredibly skilled, you could probably get away with less than 8 hours per day.

You're making smart decisions. Keep doing that.

    Pros

    Great food, great campus, great projects to work on. As an engineer you have a lot of autonomy on what to work on.

    Cons

    Campus is in the middle of nowhere, so not much interaction with people from other companies or local startups.
