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

    Pros

    It's so much fun to work for Facebook. Amazing perks and benefits. Free breakfast, lunch, dinner. They respect your work style - no set start/end times. Culture built on feedback, all levels are very receptive to listen to your opinion. no bureaucracy, transparent, impactful

    Cons

    I really can't think of any downside. It's all I can ask from a company, there's no other place I'd rather work for.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at FB is definitely the people who work there. I've made so many friends and everybody are friendly to each other. Also they are actually intelligent people. I mean, even the cook was a student! :-) BTW cook, the food is for free and I love it. Free food and drinks (even Red Bull and ice cream on summer). Nice parties on top of the roof. OMG. The bbq was awesome.

    Cons

    Paper plates and plastic spoons etc. I dislike! Salary is ok. I should have asked for more. Oh well.

    Advice to Management

    Cancel all meetings. :-)

    Best place to work? Depends on who you ask.

    Pros

    Free food, laundry, flexible work schedules, commuter shuttles, gym membership discounts, and the opportunity to work with smart & motivated people on a massively popular product are good reasons to work here.

    Cons

    If you work in User Operations at any level other than Associate or Lead, prepare to be bored, frustrated, and stifled in career development. The jobs in this department mostly involve repetitive task work such as content moderation and responding to user emails, but you will get slightly more interesting tasks from time to time such as working directly with an engineer. You will not be given much respect or appreciation for your work, nor will you be promoted unless you schmooze with the right crowd and embody the essential 'Facebooker'. The bureaucracy problem has gotten much better over time, but it certainly still exists. Everyone is smart, so the competition for a few leadership positions is tough, and you'll be denied promotions for fairly abstract reasons. The target is always moving. It's also quite difficult to transfer to a different department - UO isn't given much benefit of the doubt. It's unfortunate that this department has developed the way it has, because there is a large, untapped pool of brilliant people who could really make great contributions to the product.

    Advice to Management

    Facebook is probably the best place in the world to work if you're a software engineer, but don't forget the people at the bottom who thanklessly support the entire user-base.

    Pros

    Although hours a bit long and it takes much time for me to commute from home to office, other things that Facebook offers all make me love this place - salary, bonus, not to mention the excellent benefits. It is also both satisfying and challenging to work with very smart colleagues. The people are young, passionate, and intelligent. The culture is very open internally were projects are discussed and ideas flow. They have amazing R+D and projects happening all the time, because people dare to dream, pursue challenges, and are generally incentivized to be innovative

    Cons

    Facebook is not a hot start-up that it used to be. When you look at the blogs, people now get excited about twitter. There is not anymore the pioneering spirit and enthusiasm that you see in a startup. In short, Facebook is getting old

    Advice to Management

    None.
