I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Amazing perks (free food, snacks, transportation, housing (own bedroom and bathroom!), as well as completely paid for intern events on the weekends

Cons

Difficult to switch teams and try other options as an intern. I chose backend on the initial interest survey and couldn't switch to full stack after I began, which ultimately led to a lot of difficulty. My team excluding my manager also all worked remotely, which made getting help very hard.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Open culture, lots of autonomy, and you'll work with some of the most brilliant people in the industry. Lots to learn and you truly feel like you make a difference when you're part of Facebook.

    Cons

    The company moves FAST -- it can be a little overwhelming when you first start. But lately there have been lots of helpful resources to help get new hires up to speed

    Pros

    Some of the best people to work with. Smart minds, fast execution and fun to talk to. Lots of new technologies to learn

    Cons

    Starting to see some lack of transparency nowadays as company scales. Engineers are sometimes spoiled and argue on small stuffs all the time
