    Pros

    Amazing environment with a strong focus on getting things done vs politics or "Process". When bad things happen, the focus is always on finding a fix rather than finding the blame. Organized chaos. Working with some of the smartest and most knowledgeable people I've ever met. They don't just throw money away, but they're willing to spend to solve problems or improve things when it's needed. The benefits like free food are excellent, and in general they treat their employees like human adults instead of children or replaceable cogs or numbers.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the organized chaos (although that's also a plus). At times it can be a bit too chaotic, though even that's improving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What you're doing is working - keep at it. Although some increase in Process and bureaucracy is inevitable as the company grows, make sure that the focus on people never goes away. The risk of following "Best Practices" down the road to mediocrity is very real, and it will take away everything that makes the company great.

    Pros

    Great place to work with some of the young and brightest people in the world. A great addition to your resume and you get to work on products that everyone that you know will use.

    Cons

    Too many Managers and ideas. Sometimes too many cooks in the kitchen will spoil the food. And that is what happens at Facebook. But then again, that is the growing pains that Facebook is going through. Also most of the innovative products have been implemented and a lot of focus now is on maintenance and tweaking. Nothing much to be excited about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your developers with respect and acknowledge their work and successes. Essentially they are ones who are keeping the company alive.
