    I have been working at Facebook

    Pros

    Definitely a lot of freedom to work on projects you like. Upper management is flexible and expects you to be able to dictate your own career path within the company. Very young, collegiate culture. This includes Friday events like Happy Hour, Q&As with Mark Zuckerberg, and even company field trips for the interns.

    Cons

    Hack is the culture. If you are not really the "hacky" type, you might not feel at home.

    Pros

    openness, freedom to choose work & define ones own career path. especially miscellaneous fringe benefits for pursuing extra curricular activities of ones choice

    Cons

    everyone focuses on immediate impact. this can prove to be a bane in the long run, if one does not occasionally stop, slow down to pay the technical debt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find ways to make the company stronger in technical wisdom
