Former Employee - Business Analyst in Menlo Park, CA
Former Employee - Business Analyst in Menlo Park, CA

I worked at Facebook full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Some perks, smart people, learning opportunities, great networking with very accomplished silicon valley folks, office space is fun (maybe too distracting)

Cons

Turning corporate, need to know the right people, holier than thou attitudes, veteran employees talking about their money and yachts, culture and communication is breaking down (Move fast and fix things), useless spending on parties/shirts/ice cream shop/laundry/etc just to keep young employees feeling like they are still in undergrad, Nepotism!!!

    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 (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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