I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

Too much stress on things that are really just minutiae

    I worked at Facebook as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The brand name of Facebook carries some power. Also the offices are nice except for the lack of AC in the area I was in.

    Cons

    For lower level employees, Facebook doesn't care about you in terms of salary and is ready to cancel you contract at any time. My contract was canceled for money problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the lower level employees feel valued and have opportunities for personal growth.
