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

Pros

- Amazing work environment (meritocracy, smart people, great technologies, ...)
- Great perks (food, snacks, health insurance, gym benefit, laundry, ...)
- Very little corporate overhead.
- Feels very much like a startup, despite being over 8 years old.

Cons

- Time-sink: it's easy to neglect everything that's not work related.
- Decent salary but nothing extraordinary.

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

    Pros

    - Hackathons
    - Flexibility in choosing how you approach a project, technical leadership opportunities
    - Benefits - Free food, dry cleaning, etc
    - Open management, Q&As with Zuck every friday are un-matched in the industry.

    Cons

    - Noisy open floor plan - Works for some, doesn't for others. The good news is, with some effort, you can get put in a corner if you want some quiet area to hack in. You could always just lock yourself in a meeting room.
