Pros

-Everyone is here because we believe in making the world more open and connected. We believe we're making a difference.
-HUGE opportunity- you see something broken, missing, or know how to do something better, go for it.
-Freedom to think outside the box. In fact, there is no box.
-Incredibly smart and supportive people.
-Open and transparent environment.
-We have fun.

Cons

We move so fast and are growing quickly, there's little time to stop and reflect as an individual but also as a team to ensure we're moving forward and focused on the right things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure we continue to hire the best people in the leadership roles, whether it is promoting from within or bringing them in from the outside. Having the right culture fit and ability to lead their teams as we grow is critical.

    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.
