What is paid time off like at Meta?

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.

Cons

Open Workspace Facebook encourages you to be yourself. Ironically, the company designed the office as a no-wall workspace policy, which you may find uncomfortable and lacking privacy. Buffet-at-Work The open workspace provides picnic-style tables, where you can sit shoulder-to-shoulder, with limited space, and gives no privacy. You will be rubbing elbows with colleagues… literally! The Facebook Employee Stereotype Most people expect Facebook employees to know everything on the site. You may still receive questions and hear complaints from people even outside the workplace. Executives Who Discriminate An anonymous former Facebook employee claimed he had his worst working experience in the company. He said higher-ups treats him like trash, gives him minimal guidance, and hands him inappropriate tasks such as sorting the director’s laundry. The “Holier-Than-Thou” Attitude One source complains that CEO and Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg and COO, Sheryl Sandberg are both self-righteous. He claims they spend too much time on “extracurricular activities.” The said source also accused the two of copying-off competition; for instance, the poke that resembles the one on Snapchat

Does Meta 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.

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