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

Pros

I joined facebook coming from 8 years in the Financial Services industry. Wow, what a world of difference. 2 biggest pros come to mind:

- Openness. Do you have an issue with a colleague or something facebook is doing? No problem. Take care of it. Facebook encourages its employees to be open and give feedback for things they think should be improved.

- Do you want to see your impact on 1 billion users? Come to facebook. Although I'm not in engineering, I work with a lot of software engineers, including interns, who constantly talk about the things they work on and how they love showing these off to their friends and family.

Cons

- Being 7 months new, I am still in the process of thinking of areas of improvement.

Advice to Management

- Continue the openness that we have at the company. We love hearing your ideas for the future!

    Coworkers - smart, hard working, fast, cooperative

    Culture
    Benefits
    Workload - you're just expected to get your work done, not spend all of your time at work

    Cons

    I'm having a hard time coming up with downsides to working at Facebook. But there's a twenty-word minimum limit for this question.

    Pros

    - everyone you'll work with here is incredibly motivated to build the best possible product and extremely talented at doing that
    - you're able to make an impact on the product and more generally how things work immediately, without waiting for seniority or a promotion
    - we move fast here, meaning your finished project won't sit around for months before shipping and we adapt rapidly to changes in the market
    - there is no such thing as an unimportant project here - we have so much to do and not enough people to do it that no one spends time on anything that won't have a big impact, not even interns
    - progression in the company, salary increases, equity refreshers, etc. happen in a clear and fair manner
    - they take care of us very well from a perks and compensation perspective - great food, an awesome campus, and more
    - everything is very flexible - as long as you get your work done and make your (very few) meetings, you pick your work hours
    - you have the resources of a larger company, like a mature codebase, helpful abstractions, automation of some uninteresting tasks - all things that let you focus more on the interesting parts of your job rather than tedious setup

    Cons

    For the first time in my life I need to watch my weight due to the awesome food and snack selection
