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

    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

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    High impact jobs from day one. Lots of responsibility, constant learning - they invest a lot into employees - training courses & personal coaches if you are a high performer. Possible to get promoted really quickly if you are good. Lots of opportunities to move into new roles, as everything is very dynamic. Super open culture, you can talk to anybody no matter how high up they are. Very inspiring workplace - your colleagues are the best out there.

    Cons

    People who are looking for a straight career path & who are looking to get challenges presented to them on a silver plate are in the wrong place. It's go in and discover the problems yourself, solve them and build up a reputation. Also, every career is different, as the company is very dynamic - so you won't find that straight-line progression you see in traditional companies.

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

    Pros

    Great facilities, very open culture, working with amazing individuals from multiple backgrounds, very fast paced and constantly changing in a good way and good career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Currently working as a Contractor, so some of the perks are limited like some amazing company events you're allowed to attend but that's understandable.

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

    I worked at Facebook full-time (more than an 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 an 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.

    Pros

    Great perks and environment!
    You can have high impact with projects as long as you are pro-active

    Cons

    A red tape throughout the company as it's getting bigger
    Having to deal with arrogant Client Partners in market
    Work/life balance can be quite poor as it can be expected that you are available in non working hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and reward the right people
