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

    Pros

    Smart people, huge impact, big data, amazing campus, fantastic perks, face paced, awesome challenges, great food, inspiring workplace, flexible hours, good management, cutting-edge technology.

    Cons

    The environment may be too stressful for some, the work is challenging. Many people do not realize the scale of the infrastructure or the size of the datasets involved. You cannot simply take an idea that worked at another company and apply it successfully here, new scales require new solutions. If you don't like being in uncharted territory then this may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Facebook as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    An innovative and open culture. Never dull! Always finding new way to improve and better connect the world. Opportunities to get involved and come up with new ideas at "Hacks". Really exciting to work for the leader in this arena. Such a focused, driven, energetic company from the top down. Beautiful, ever-improving campus with fabulous food options, bike riding and running trails, and new amenities arriving every few months.

    Cons

    Some departments are a little "political" and your performance may be overlooked, despite how well you actually perform and are told you perform. Most departments in the company do not operate this way fortunately, but there are a few and performance may be overlooked due to a manager's agenda. Honesty can be an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the playing field level. Keep communication open...it's starting to slip in some departments. Honesty and sincerity need some work.
