    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Facebook is an employee-focused company. Working here I feel valued and appreciated. I feel lucky to be part of this organization.

    Cons

    This is not a real con, actually, but rather a reflection on the fact that in order to be successful at Facebook you have to be comfortable with change.

    Advice to Management

    I'm inspired by my management from a professional as well as from a personal point of view.

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

    Pros

    An incredible amount of time and effort is put into pushing employees to be the best version of themselves they can be, both professionally and personally. Development and career opportunities abound everywhere you look, and the quality of people that you are surrounded with is eons beyond anything I've seen at any other company, and I've worked for quite a few in different parts of the world. Culture plays an important role, and is also what makes the special place it is. The workload is high, but a heavy emphasis is put on having the right work-life balance/integration - which helps keep things humane. Even with a high workload, the impact of what we do is seen and felt on a very regular basis, pushing me to continue in my quest to be the best version of myself I can be, so I can deliver results that support our ultimate mission of making the world more open and connected. The hype is very real. It really is this good here.

    Cons

    Being surrounded by the creme de la creme day in and day out makes imposter syndrome a very real and regular challenge. Keeping these thoughts in check can be challenging, but if you can manage it, and focus on being the best version of yourself, everything works out in the end. Incredibly fast moving changes can be tough to keep up with, but its also a big part of the joy of being here. There isn't much to complain about, which is why I'm having difficulty finding something of real substance to put here. Oh yeah - the free food, drinks, and snacks absolutely must be offset by regular workouts, or else the natural process of weight gain will rear it's ugly head. File that under #TheFoodIsTooGood.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on culture, its what makes this place unlike anything else in the world. We're all scared that as we continue to grow, culture will fall to the wayside. Keep fighting the fight - the message is getting through, albeit not to every single one of us, but regardless of that fact, keep it up, you're doing great. #ShipLove

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

    Pros

    - Great atmosphere - High degee of ownership in your role and in side-projects - A lot of freebies (food, sport facilities, etc) - Competitive compensation

    Cons

    Not many cons. The company moves fast and sometimes the information can be scattered across the organization, hence will take a certain level of proactivity to gather.

    I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    some smart and welcoming colleagues opportunity to advance your career and work on any project (full time employees) incredible benefits (full time employees) awesome place for extroverts, hipsters, geeks, people aged 20 to 30 free food

    Cons

    some jobs are repetitive therefore you won't learn much office cliques contract workers sometimes feel like second-class citizens and micromanaged some employees do not "understand" colleagues who are parents, over 35, introverts or going through a tough time in life some full time employees should get off their high horse

    Advice to Management

    avoid micromanagement include and respect different personalities contract workers should be promoted to full time employees if their performance is great - after all, a high turnover rate cannot create the team spirit you always talk about
