    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Making a difference in and out of Facebook. Mission of connecting people is beneficial to millions of people. Compensation and perks very good. Lacks bureaucracy. Good equipment. Self-starters can go far. Free, fresh food and drinks. Paid parking.

    Cons

    Open plan offices can get noisy/crowded. Everyone has headphones.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more time for individual/team projects started from the 'ground up'.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The biggest problem with working for Facebook is showing up to work every day (well, not every day since the work-from-home policy is pretty liberal) and thinking, "Man, this must be a bubble. I mean, there's a bouncy house, 10 scotch bars, and they're roasting a pig in Hacker Square." But, if you can stand that, the rest is great.

    Cons

    Gotta be REALLY careful with data. Despite what you see on Facebook, there is nothing that Facebook is more concerned about than protecting its users' data. People "disappear" from time to time, and the reason is usually that someone *&(^ed up and did something with data that they shouldn't have, whether accidentally or intentionally.

    Advice to Management

    Careful with the B-School BS. Let's keep it a no-nonsense, engineering-focused company. Stop using the (non)word, "learnings." Squash any hint of bureaucracy.
