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

Pros

Really smart people and company moves incredibly fast. You can have a huge impact in a short amount of time. There is a ton of ownership and it is a pretty flat organization. The benefits at the HQ are great- free food, gym on site, shuttles to work and flexible hours. Mark has a very clear vision for the company and everyone who works here really believes in the mission. It is nice to work at a founder led company with such a strong sense of mission to make the world more open and connected.

Cons

Some of the teams are political which can be frustrating. The Menlo Park office is kind of in the middle of nowhere so there aren't any places to run quick errands or grab drinks/food after work without going all the way to downtown Palo Alto.
