My favorite company by far among the 6 I've worked for across 20+ years in tech

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

opportunity for impact is still very large for most roles. Company is mission driven so if you're fired up about the mission that gives you a lot of momentum each day and most of the people around you are driven by the same thing.

Cons

while I appreciate all of the benefits (laundry, amazing free food, etc) it gets a little silly after a while and occasionally creates an icky sense of entitlement.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Menlo Park, CA

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

    Pros

    Work with great people and learn things. Moves really fast and new projects are being built all the time. The culture is very open. Very few things to worry about so that you can focus on your stuff.

    Cons

    Long work time, but that is somewhat related to how much impact you want to make. Also everything (e.g. meals, food, gym etc.) tends to keep you at the campus. Not sure if this is good for family.

    I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Open culture, smart coleagues, lots of growth opportunities, gourmet lunches, flexible schedule, hard work

    Cons

    Management is a bit non existent, needs to learn to be more transparent and better communicate expectations to newbis. Otherwise great people, honest and smart.
