Facebook - Amazing company and opportunities | Glassdoor
  1. "Great experience, very dependent on team/manager"

      Current Employee - Analyst in San Francisco, CA

      I have been working at Facebook full-time

      Pros

      - Fast paced environment that instills ruthless prioritization into you veins - Interesting projects/challenges that you'll probably encounter across many teams - Perks + benefits are hard to beat -- they really do try their best at making you not worry about anything else

      Cons

      Nothing company wide but if you end up w/ a mediocre manager/lead, be prepared to fight your own battles(something you'll find in almost every job w/ a company of this size)

      "Fast paced company with high expectations, but incredibly fair. You won't a place that cares more about it's people."

      I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      - Incredible benefits - Excellent compensation that rewards strong performance - Lots of autonomy - Tons of room for growth - Very transparent from the top down - Strong leadership - Intelligent and caring colleagues - The most fair and well thought out review process you will find everywhere - Exciting work

      Cons

      - If you don't learn to make the work life balance work for you, it can be exhausting. But you'll also be given lots of support with this if you ask for it. - It doesn't matter how good you are at your job, chances are you're going to be surrounded by a ton of other people who are just as good if not better. Imposter syndrome is real, but if you got an offer, you probably belong here too.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you're doing, keep an eye on employee burnout, keep supporting your people and keep pushing them, and the rest of the world, forward.

      I have been working at Facebook

      Pros

      I'm a 55 year old working in a company where the average age is 28, and I've never been happier. I have always wanted to work in a company where I wasn't the proverbial square peg, and after nearly 30 years in the work force, I believe that I have found the company that complements my ideology for how a company should operate. Here are the "Pros" as I see them... - Leadership: Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Chris...

      Cons

      Like any tech company, the work is big and complicated so work/life balance can suffer from time to time. The difference is that it's the passion within the individuals that drives them to work long hours and forego time off. Of course there can be times when schedule demands force the imbalance, but it's not such that 10-12 hours days become commonplace and expected regardless. We do what we do to get the job done; no...

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you're doing and fight hard to not be complacent. I believe that humility is the key so don't ever lose that thinking. Your motives will always be suspect, but if you're able to look in the mirror everyday and know that your motives are pure, that's all that matters. Walking the talk is the best evidence there is.
