    Pros

    1, It provides many activities. Weekends activities in beach park, baseball game, zoos etc. Informative sessions includes summer fest, research informative session for P.h.D. 2, open work environment. The work atmosphere is very good. You get to work with many talented people and learn from their profession and efficiency. They have many support groups each one of them can help you with some area which you have difficulty with. 3, Perks are very good. You got free 3 meals a day, and you got many free stuff.

    Cons

    I can not think of much disadvantages. For people who don't like work at high pace, it might not be good to work in facebook.

    Interning at Facebook

    Pros

    Facebook gets a lot of flak at my school and people love to hate on it. I didn't go in with a bias or anything, I was generally curious to see what it would be like and I'm happy to say the company is amazing. The people there are really cool and the people in charge care about the company. Leadership is open and transparent and the weekly Q&As with Mark did wonders to humanize the chap. Great fun to work at and the quality of the compensation goes without saying.

    Cons

    I can't think of much. I worked on a low level project so impact wasn't super exciting but the work was fun nonetheless.

    Pros

    Facebook deeply cares about its employees and has built a compelling culture around support and growth. Career growth opportunities are plentiful. If you don't like the team you're on or don't get the support you want from your manger, Facebook empowers you to find new teams or projects. Facebook wants its employees to be invested in their work and to feel connected to its larger mission. If large scale opportunities and growth are important to you, Facebook is a fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    Facebook's culture is demanding and fast paced. The greatest aspect of working at Facebook is that everyone is very motivated and very smart. The problem with this is that they all expect the very same of you. Holding a very high bar for excellence can certainly be demanding so it's important to make sure you're always carefully paying attention to your own personal work/life balance.
