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

Pros

Facebook is a doggedly open and honest company, and it's by far one of the best places you can go to kickstart or mature your career.

Cons

Working in a remote office can substantially limit your career growth potential. If you're in a non-sales, non-engineering role and you're interested in staying for the long haul, be prepared to accept the high possibility of a move to the Bay Area and an hours-long commute.

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

    Pros

    Smart people. Amazing opportunities for impact. Challenging roles. Great benefits. As close to a startup in a big company as you can get. Generally, you are heralded for pushing the limits of today's solutions and thinking about the bigger picture.

    Cons

    Average leaders are coddled by senior leadership and protected by HR. For very autonomous self-starters, this will drive you nuts. If you are working under one of these managers, you'll have to leave your position before you are able to "move fast and break things," which is disappointing.

    Advice to Management

    Sniff out the feet-draggers in management and cut the dead weight. This is hard, because generally those leaders manage up the best.

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

    Pros

    - Problem personalities, egos and politics fairly minimal. Managers are pretty good at minimizing and not rewarding this behavior. - Fantastic benefits: three great free meals, fully loaded snacks, actual travel and training budget for all levels of employees. - Professional, patient, open colleagues (for the most part). - Make a case for what you need to do your job and you get it. No struggles, no hassles environment.

    Cons

    - Large company environment: lots of noise, chaos, lack of planning - People are still people and in any group environment they will show their stress profiles (self-centered, inconsiderate, domineering, lack boundaries, fighting over resources, pushing agendas for the sake of face/ego)

    Advice to Management

    - More training for individual contributors on effective communications and teamwork - More training for individual contributors and managers on being positive, constructive leaders
