Approves of CEO

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

Pros

-Great food -Generous on the perks- great company party, on-site Valet, pay for laundry, gym etc.

Cons

-Employees and Culture Culture- Highly political, unfriendly, confrontational. Not about working towards a shared vision- everyone is out to look out for their "value-add" as opposed to doing meaningful work. Too much marketing of oneself. Employees- Most are incredibly immature and lack focus, vision. Feel entitled and want to move to the next thing rather than look at how they can grow in their own roles.

Advice to Management

More direction, vision and focus.

    Pros

    The office environment is good in general, also having a big name on your resume may be good for the future. Most of the colleagues are very prepared technically.

    Cons

    As company grows they are trying to cut costs, objectives are unrealistically set, bonuses and promotions are considerably lower. If you work here on visa, pay increases and promotions are slowed down even more. Mid management gets packed with responsibilities, the individual contribution is no longer relevant, the general philosophy seems to be "it's normal for people to leave the company" and that happens regularly after every performance cycle or stock vesting time. To counterbalance this, company seems to brainwash employees with slogans, posters are everywhere around the office to make "the culture", many company employees believe and talk with slogans. Life/work balance is simply set to "no life". I've seen managers complain if someone takes more than one week off in a row, or making jokes about family duties the first day someone returns from parental leave.

    Advice to Management

    managers promoted from engineering are not always able to deal with people.
