I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- I get to help solve problems for a billion people... literally. I go to parties and friends complain to me about Facebook and I love it... because I'm empowered to help make it better. I often turn around and literally try and solve those exact problems because I *can* help.
- I get to solve really interesting business problems.
- I have access to the most senior executives -- even though it's big, it isn't *that* layered.
- The perks are outstanding. My friends tease me for getting to work at grown up Disneyland.

Cons

The commute from SF is a bummer, but I agree with not having an office up there.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture and environment is amazing. Everyone is empowered and responsible, there's no politics or overly restrictive processes or oppressive management oversite.

    Cons

    The pace can be exhausting. It can be very stressful. You have to get used to all the media attention and mudslinging.
