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

Pros

Great Open Culture
Free Food
Work with Bright people
Access to Senior leadership
4 months paternity leave
Virtually Unlimited resources

Community is at the core of FB. I’ve never worked at a company that cares so much about its people. Taking care of yourself and working sustainably is part of the culture. All the amenities are there to keep you focused (or distracted). Food, snacks, multiple gyms (with classes), car service, life@ (I took my passport photos there for heavens sake).

We have, workplace, FB’s own internal app. It’s like Facebook within Facebook for employees. I can message anybody and be in contact with anybody in the company. I’m an entry level engineer and talk to VPs Directors and even Mark, who holds open forum EVERY Friday in person. That level of access is phenomenal.

If you have an idea you can do it. You have the support and finances to achieve whatever you can think of. If you’ve worked anywhere else then you can see why everything I’ve written is so important. It just isn’t like that anywhere else.

Cons

It’s so good that it would be hard to work anywhere else. I’m destroyed for life. If it’s your first job I would feel bad because this is NOT a true view of the working world. If you’re humble enough to appreciate that then you should be ok. I believe people can develop a degree of entitlement and hubris in this environment. You can run into folks like that, but the majority of others are great.

Advice to Management

Mark is doing a fantastic job managing a service that over 2 Billion people use worldwide. The way FB has evolved so much so fast has brought a lot of unexpected uses. Stay the course, and don’t stray from what people love most about FB. Connecting with Friends and Family.
