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

    Pros

    Sure, there are perks like the food (it's really that good), the gym, etc. But the best reasons to work here are the people, the scale (both technical and impact), and the way management prioritizes well beyond short-term returns.

    Cons

    The location isn't particularly convenient, but as the campus completes construction that seems to be less of an issue. This stage in the press cycle isn't partcularly fun, but that will pass.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communications open - it makes such a difference as we grow.

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

    Pros

    - really sharp, passionate co-workers
    - blazingly fast ship cycle (new code hits the site *every day*)
    - your work helps hundreds of millions of people connect with friends and family
    - tremendous discretion over what team to join and what projects to work on
    - open, warm, friendly, funny company culture
    - awesome perks (never-ending supply of free food, 21 days PTO, 4 months parental leave)

    Cons

    - fast pace sometimes results in bugs
    - if you like micromanagement, you probably won't like FB: engineers have a lot of autonomy.
