Smart and driven colleagues
Vision of management and Mark Zuckerberg to prioritize long term goals over short term ones
Ability to work on a product that affects hundreds of millions of people
Employees given large responsibilities relatively early in their careers
Strong culture makes it fun to work here

Relatively understaffed which means you have more responsibility and ability to define your work but longer hours
Facebook starting to grow and increase its level of bureaucracy although it is still limited

    I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best reason that I can think of personally is that it has afforded me the opportunity to go from the install side of IT. To understanding the process for diagnostic methods of troubleshooting data center equipment. There is a wealth of knowledge that I have access to within the Data Centers (Asburn, Va.) and the Facebook Family.

    Cons

    A downside would be not wanting to work for or with the Facebook Family.

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

    Pros

    Strong entrepreneurial culture that fosters independence and proactivity. This translates in small talented teams that can makes things happen. And funnily it's a very open and connected organization, no red tape in sight. Management truly values longterm over short term, and proves they do by not being afraid of changing their strategies whenever circumstances change.

    Cons

    The proactivity and independence are required to stay on track and focussed in such an understaffed and fast moving company.
