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!!!

    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.

    Great place, great mission, great creativity and upper managment support behind creativity

    getting to large to execute on creative ideas

    Advice to Management

    Management is aware of the employee scaling issues and works on "drift" control constantly.
