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

    Pros

    FB is a company built around the hacker culture and it shows in numerous ways. You're valued for your work and for getting things done.

    Cons

    The pace is hectic and churn is always on the verge of drowning you.

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows commit some resources towards also getting some semblance of order and documentation before everyone spends most of his time just asking everyone else one tidbit at a time.
