    I have been working at Facebook

    Pros

    I'm very happy working at facebook.
    * Other employees are very friendly and supportive
    * Facebook is more meritocratic than other tech companies I've worked for
    * The other people working here are very smart
    * Facebook gives engineers more responsibility than other places I've been

    Cons

    Sometimes facebook is kinda unpopular in some circles due to privacy criticisms. Facebook sometimes emphasizes speed over engineering quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think we should stop releasing products that aren't fully done yet. I'd like to see more internal iteration on products until we have something that has had all the issues worked through and that is very reliable and polished.

    If you are in Engineering, you are at the right place. If, Operations... don't look back and run.

    Pros

    If you are in Engineering department, you are at one of the best place to work for.

    Cons

    Operations department management sucks, they don't treat to people in a respectful and fair way. If you want to be a good position in Operations, you need to be friend of some certain people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Question and try to understand why you constantly loose people from Operations. Facebook Software Engineering departments might be ideal place to work for but not the Operations.
