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

Pros

Terrific Company, great internships that have high risk and reward.

Cons

Full time employees have on-call shifts, which means being available 24/7. But interns don't have to do on-call

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the openness of choosing your own team for full time hires

    Pros

    There isn't enough space to write them all. You work with the best, smartest, most interesting people in the world. You are working on problems that can touch over 1 billion people. If we don't have the tools we need to do something, we make them, then do what we wanted to do. I've never worked at a place that so inspiring, creative, and FUN as this one. I've been here for over a year and I am STILL not upset when it's Monday and I have to go back to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be frustrating when you want to work on something, but have to prioritize something else that's higher impact. Luckily my manager works with me to ensure that I always have some time allocated to what I'm passionate about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing a fantastic job. The fact that you've been able to scale this culture as well as you have is a true testament to how much you love it here as well.
