Pros

Huge impact on billions of people while working with awesome, insanely intelligent coworkers at a pleasant office. Great free food and perks. Lots of autonomy and big problems to solve. Engineer driven culture. Down to earth, available CEO.

Cons

Being on-call and dealing with lots of product uncertainty. Long commute if you live in SF. Work-life balance tends to steer toward work.

Advice to Management

There's nothing I'd advice them that I wouldn't and haven't said in person.

    Pros

    I had the privilege of working at this company as an intern a few times. Of all the internships I've had, this company's culture best aligns with my own. The teams tend to be small, the work environment really feels like home. The food is ok, but I mainly ate at the salad bar. I love that as an engineer, I'm not restricted in the type of equipment I get, and that I can get whatever I need to improve myself.

    Cons

    This isn't the best place, if you want to have an excellent work life balance, since it's really easy to just stay at work all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose that sense of small company feel just to have more control or order.

  2. Facebook - MPK is a great place to work

    Pros

    the food is incredible, the people are bright and fun, there's opportunity to effect millions of people with what you create

    Cons

    move fast break things may mean that the project you're working on will not work out. so while they execute things quickly they also kill things off quickly. also that commute is rough if you live in the city.

    Advice to Management

    spend more time with your employees
