I have been working at Facebook full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I've been blown away by how incredible this company is. From its openness to its diversity, Facebook has truly surpassed all tech companies in terms of culture, perks, and employee lifestyle. As a software engineer, I've learned, grown, and made an incredible impact in just a few months.

Cons

I seriously can't think of a single negative thing about Facebook. I couldn't see myself working at any other company.

Advice to Management

Micromanagement doesn't exist. I get credit for what I do, and there's a pretty clear understanding of my role and room for growth.
