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

Pros

It is an amazing place. The new HQ is gorgeous and huge.

You get to make whatever you want and launch it to a billion people.

Cons

It can be a little distracting to be required to use Facebook at work.

I've never worked for another large company, but I think it's better than most. Allocation process took a while.

Advice to Management

Vision is great, but also considering new ideas can be useful.

    I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a young and energetic company. Teams always switch seats so there's a high chance you can sit a few feet away from Zuckerberg and Sandberg and these famous people. The motto is to move fast and stay focused. Work can be stressful, but if you're in a good team like Mobile, there're plenty of opportunities to do fun stuff on beaches or zoos or...

    Cons

    Work can be stressful. Everyone works really hard. The company is getting bigger nowadays so you have less and less ownership of a certain product. Gender ratio is really bad.

    Advice to Management

    Hire fewer interns because some of them don't get work.

    I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Facebook's culture of moving fast and breaking things is really great. You really get code in production very fast and you can make a large impact over the world pretty quick.
    Also the no cubicles workplace is nice, and all the other perks

    Cons

    I don't see any major downside of working at Facebook. Everything was just great during my whole internship.
