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

Pros

-The smartest people with the most passion about what they work on.
-People who legitimately want to make people's lives better through open communication.
-Amazing technological infrastructure worked on by everyone at the company - not just a core team.
-Leadership that thinks about the future and makes every effort to move towards it.

Cons

-A lot of work. No lie, people expect a lot out of you and you will work hard. It'll be challenging problems with no clear solutions because people haven't operated at this scale before.
-Leadership visibility. You will be in meetings with the senior leaders about day-to-day matters.

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to choose what you want to work on. Also, the company does its best to ensure you have everything you need to do your job really well. And bunch of very smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Too much ambiguity. if you are someone that expects to be told what to work on and what needs to be done, this ain't the place for you.

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

    Pros

    Everything at Facebook moves incredibly quickly which makes it a very exciting place to be. There are also a ton of smart people there and I feel like I'm constantly learning new things from my coworkers.

    Cons

    People generally work very hard. This is by choice (people are generally excited about what they are working on and trying to ship stuff quickly) but it does mean that there's a fair amount of peer pressure to work hard and it's easy to feel like there's always a little bit more that you could be doing.
