What is paid time off like at Facebook?

Pros

WFH Work life balance office (when open) stocked w/ free food, drinks, snacks autonomy can meet a lot of great people and make connections

Cons

As a contractor you're treated like you're not really part of the company. You're payed less and expected to do the same if not more work than FTEs. No paid holidays and difficult/ impossible to get converted. Comms are all over the place and a bit disorganized, Favoritism and they claim to do things without bias but we have yet to see that... Internal interview process is also a complete joke. They keep horrible recruiters around that we cannot understand why.

Advice to Management

Reward people who work hard. Avoid micro managing.

Does Facebook offer dental insurance?

Pros

* The pay is top of market and few can match it * Perks are unbelievable, dozens of different cuisines for lunch, 21 days of PTO, fantastic medical coverage * Really smart coworkers, some of the best in the world

Cons

* High profile projects can be extremely political and can really be dragged down by too many cooks in the kitchen * In a post Cambridge Analytica world there are huge slow downs in releasing new features / products, people aren't driven by making the experience better for the users as much as they are not screwing up again * People at the company aren't focused on users as much as they are moving metrics

Advice to Management

Go back to basics and focus on users. Take bigger bets and move away from the "move last and take things" mentality.

Does Facebook offer family leave?

Pros

Good benefits, good perks, beautiful office and researchers are generally friendly.

Cons

Here’s a hint: Lowest Pulse scores in the company. Not that it matters. The managers act like they are above everyone else and can do no wrong. Only one manager cares for her team, everyone else acts like a micromanaging supervisor in a call center. There is no accountability for any bias or poor treatment. They do not support your work or your growth. Your impact is determined only if you are part of the cool kids club—especially if you’re a white girl.

Advice to Management

Restructure the entire team or just outsource our jobs if you are going to treat us so badly.
