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

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.

    Pros

    There is little friction between developing product improvements and shipping them. Engineers are generally given lots of authority to figure out the right thing to do and just do it. When people come from other companies they are often shocked by this, but even as the company has grown there are still very few gatekeepers between an engineer and getting their code into production.

    Cons

    Lots of the internal systems can be flaky. Scale is more important than reliability or consistency in some cases, which makes building reliable apps frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Put more focus on engineering quality and many issues will right themselves.
