No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Pleasant atmosphere. Convenient onsite perks. Friendly, well-meaning people. Opportunities to be hired in-house if someone likes you.

Cons

As a vendor you are a second-class citizen. One may have the responsibility for a project, but no one consults your opinion on how to best execute. Too much top-down, one-way communication. Reactionary, impulsive decision making based on limited, often incorrect or incomplete, information makes it difficult to focus and be effective on longterm goals. Everything is based on relationships. So if you are an FTE, you could be completely inept, inappropriate, offensive and egotistical, (--as long as it's to a vendor--) but if you get along well with the right people, it's overlooked. I recommend working here only as an FTE.

Advice to Management

Survey your contingent and contract workers. Most of these people are just as dedicated, intelligent and capable. Practice more inclusion and gratitude.

    Pros

    Facebook has amazing perks for employees and tried really hard to be the best employer in the valley. Their benefits are next to none and the company is genuinely interested in ensuring that people are happy and stay for the long run. Also the people in the company are really smart and hence it is easy to have a super enriching experience working here.

    Cons

    The work atmosphere is intense and too engineering centric. Some employees have risen quickly as they have been in the right place at the right time but are not necessarily the best for their role.
