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

Pros

The people are amazing. Everyone is so smart and passionate about what they do that you never have negative conversations about someone wanting to get their way just because they want their way.

The culture of getting stuff done as fast as possible and trusting to individual ownership to make it work is also huge.

Cons

You will work a zillion hours and still not be done with your work.

Advice to Management

Be careful about relying on the people you already know and trust too much. The company is getting too big to be run entirely based on trust in a few individuals.

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

    Pros

    They give interns big real responsibilities and expect them to perform. They expose you to different teams and you get a large breadth of experience.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a bit tricky, the environment is great and fun and they push you to perform., but you're still spending a lot of time at work. Possibly because I'm an intern from Canada, I'd work 50-60 hours a week.

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

    Pros

    - Extremely competent people all around
    - Lot of energy and motivation
    - Strong sense of engineering and hacking culture
    - Clear and transparent messaging from upper management

    Cons

    - Lot of work so you tend to be under pressure most of the time
    - Be ready to feel average even if you have been a star at your previous job (Like I said everyone around you is really good)
