Pros

Wonderful amenities - the food is just outstanding. Everything is home-made and natural or organic. Wide variety with lots of restaurants, and it's all FREE.
Beautiful campus, bicycles are available for either going from building to building or going for a ride in the afternoon
Lots of places to relax or lie down if you need a break
GREAT coffee and a Philz coffee on campus
Sweet Stop shop if you need a sugar lift in the PM
Fantastic help desk for IT issues. Anything you need to do your job is given to you. Laptops and phones are top-of-the-line.
Something is always happening on campus, whether it's a vendor, a celebrity visitor, or Mark Z making an appearance.

Cons

Work is always abundant and there is a chaotic atmosphere
The feel is always "do it right now"
People are under a lot of pressure to get things done
Atmosphere can be impersonal because you're so "hooked in" to everyone else electronically, that you can work from home very easily

Advice to Management

Great place to work, keep it up!

    Pros

    Fast paced, high impact, lots of freedom to pursue directions you find interesting, awesome data set, the ability to have an idea and see it implemented and affecting real people in weeks or months instead of years

    Cons

    Work/life balance not great, overarching "connect the world" goal pretty consistent and clear, but specific direction is often lacking and/or inconsistent.

    Advice to Management

    Too much stress on things that are really just minutiae
