Pros

The energy and direction of the company! There's plenty of opportunity to take on new responsibilities and build the future of Facebook.

Cons

As with all smaller companies, you will thrive if you're a person that appreciates the fact that many processes are not in place but there for you to create or re-vamp.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pace the growth. Hire aggressively but with caution. Make sure the current infrastructure can meet the number of people joining.

    Pros

    Facebook is a fantastic place to work. Yes, you get to work on big things, there are cool new opportunities all over the place, and there's lots of cache...but what really matters is that this is a place full of smart, engaged, and driven people. You don't have conversations at Facebook where you walk away saying "he just didn't get it." This makes every day so much better it's hard to even begin to explain.

    Cons

    Management is great at a lot of things...but not necessarily at manageing the business. Random stuff just happens that sometimes doesn't make sense across all aspects of the business. Often, initiatives just happen over night, without properly involving all the relevant stakeholders. Sometimes the business side of the company seems to be operating in completely different world from the engineering side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder at integrating business and engineering.
