    Pros

    It's cool a lot of smart people, its dynamic and engaging, you will learn a lot

    Cons

    I feel like the company is getting so big that maybe it isn't as easy to go up in the hierarchy as it used to be

    Former Employee - Production Engineering Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Facebook full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture & core values - Focus on Impact, Move Fast, Be Bold, Be Open - these are not just buzzwords but are the true embodiment of the company.

    Great colleagues - The overwhelming majority of staff at FB are world-class at what they do and are dedicated to doing a great job.

    Great working environment & perks. FB really takes care of their employees in pretty much every sense of the word.

    The company innovates and iterates really quickly and, despite the speed, moves to a surprisingly high quality bar.

    Cons

    Not a real "con" per-se, but it would be great to have a broader set of engineering teams in Dublin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work :-)

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company really cares about its employees, everything moves fast and it's not a "bureaucratic" place where you need to speak with 5 managers before do something. You can really make impact.

    Cons

    Everything is centralized in MPK and sometimes it's a bit difficult working from other offices.
    You have to challenge yourself everyday and maybe not everybody can do this for long.
    You're really comfortable at the office and you end up spending more hours there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's OK base promotions and growth on impact but sometimes, people could do other things with a non clear and measurable impact that they do not do because it won't count for their reviews. Impact is great and important but we should also consider more factors.
