    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    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.


  2. "Great place to learn while having an impact"

    Back-end work generally viewed as less glamorous than front-end work
    Everyone outside the company always asks about the stock price

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job and try not to change the culture
