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

Pros

Best benefits, supportive environment, great and transparent pay, great internal mobility, in touch and compassion management, forward looking, and employee centric.

Cons

Lots of new grads, so it sometimes feels like adult college. I jokingly call their awesome holiday party Facebook prom. Culture is endangered in new offices.

Advice to Management

Pay close attention to the culture in the new Chicago office... it’s all new people.

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

    Pros

    - Great benefits, especially if you have dependents.
    - Good autonomy to conduct your own analysis as a Data Scientist

    Cons

    - Opportunities to pursue more technical lines of work (building ML models, creating data infra, etc.) are limited by the characteristics of the team you're placed on
    - A lot of questions/direction coming from upper level management that halts the process of the work you may be more interested in doing (deep dive analyses) for more market-sizing/strategy type work
