    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.
