I have been working at Facebook as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Excellent benefits, smart people, fast moving and high impact.

Cons

May be moving too fast for its own good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Moving fast is good but it shouldn't be at the expense of being thoughtful.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The technical bar across the company is really high, which makes it a great place to build great things and learn from your peers. It has a ton of benefits that make your life very comfortable (laundry, commute shuttles, restaurant, gym) but nothing beats being surrounded by great people.

    Cons

    Not really a con but it's a place to do some hard work and get stuff done. The technical bar being as high as it is, the engineering teams are usually short staffed and some pressure builds up.

    Do not join the recruiting team, the rest of company is pretty good.

    I worked at Facebook full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are tons of perks but after 3yrs it doesn't matter if you are not happy with the team, job or the way you are treated.

    Cons

    I have many but I'll keep this short. I'd say the biggest problem is the recruiting managment and also the lack of growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wow, so much to say here. Again to keep it short and sweet, I'd say stop treating people like they are work horses and move away from the belief that the more you beat them down the more you think you'll get out them.

    On a side note, this is only for the recruiting team. The rest of Facebook's teams actually seemed pretty great with the exception of a few.
