Pros

The people at Facebook are smart, creative and very approachable. The company has an open and horizontal work culture which makes it easy to have discussions across teams. The perks are awesome and it's always exciting and rewarding to go to work every day. The internal tools are great and the way that the company uses Groups, internally, makes it easy to ask colleagues for solutions to issues you might be facing in your work.

Also, I had the best experience with the Facebook recruiting team, they really care about you as a candidate and their communication is efficient, kind and transparent. Overall, a really amazing place to work!

Cons

Not really a major issue, there's always a lot of stuff happening so sometimes it can be hard to focus on your work. You need to develop good self-discipline to prevent distraction, especially if you come from a very corporate work environment.

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment, constant iteration, no time to get bored but plenty of time and opportunities to learn and get smarter. A lot of experienced engineers and non-engineers, willing to share every last bit of their knowledge.

    Cons

    Disparity of perks and pay between HQ and satellite offices is somewhat de-motivating, but those who can and want can always move to HQ if they can find a place there (not that hard, actually) - so not a complaint as such, just a point worth mentioning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep trying not to become one of those old-school corporations tied up in red-tape
