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

Pros

A great place to work. Well-distributed culture of seeking impact and keeping productive which, along with a considered hiring approach, means that everyone you encounter is bright and eager to help you get things done. Low-touch management style is encouraged, with focus on growth and getting blockers out of the way.

Cons

High public visibility when you cause the site to crash. No 401(k) match. Hard to keep up with all that is going on.

    Pros

    Very exciting place to work. High visibility and impact. The company is very open and transparent about it's workings. I feel like they treat me like an adult, with the expectations that I'll act like one.

    Cons

    I work in a remote office (Seattle), and find that the culture here is different than in the main office in Menlo Park. I think more could be done to migrate the culture to the remote office. I'm also concerned that if growth (# of employees) is something we seek to maximize, and something we measure success against, then we jeopardize the amazing culture that has been so well cultivated.

    Advice to Management

    Love it here, hope that we can maintain the amazing work atmosphere as the company grows.
