Lots to learn from great people. Especially if this is your first job.

I worked at Facebook as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Lots of learning opportunities. Especially if this is your first job. The best part is I'd say the move fast culture. It feels very much like a start up, along with the perks and benefits of working in a big company. Also, you'll get better guidance here, from more experienced colleagues as compared to a startup. The company values like "Nothing at Facebook is someone else's problem" and the fact that they're actually put into practice make it an awesome place to work. :D Even breaking things is a good experience to have! Last but not the least, the free food, the swag, the awesome campus, the hackathons and all other perks!

Cons

Sometimes you may not get work you like. But that wouldn't be the case for jobs I guess, because of Bootcamp. I was just an intern. So no bootcamp for me.

    Pros

    Amazing company culture, ultra aligned vision, fantastic talented and motivated colleagues, entrepreneurial and "hacker" culture is very strong. Of course the perks are nice, but they are just there to remove distractions to allow you to focus on what matters. If you are attracted solely by perks, look elsewhere, you don't belong here.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, but hey, you don't change the world by resting.
