No opinion of CEO

Pros

Free food, dry cleaning, snacks Extremely bright people in engineering/product teams Startup / Entrepreneurial feel leads to opportunities to make a bigger impact

Cons

Most jobs are in sales and operations People in this team are in a separate building and are not valued by Senior Mgmt Meetings all the time - hard to get to work

Advice to Management

Get rid of the Products vs Everyone Else mentality, and promote a one team culture Stop scheduling so many meetings all the time and make sure people are actually working than trying to get noticed with hi-vis projects that may not add that much value

    Pros

    Facebook is amazing. Working here offers the best environment I have ever seen in a workplace. The job is all about cooperation, not competition. The Facebook culture, office design, and management styles all support this.

    Cons

    With the small number of employees, everyone is expected to change the world.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Push code daily, work with extremely talented engineers, free food, great compensation, and seeing everyone I know use the product

    Cons

    Long hours but Facebook engineers tend to be the type who passionately enjoy their work and build products for fun anyways

    Advice to Management

    Continue trusting the engineers to do what is right and allowing engineers be bold and not have to check in with management
