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

    Pros

    Surrounded by smart people. Very comfortable in terms of food options, environment, exercise options, local amenities, support for being able to excel, encouragement to grow. Working from home allowed in moderation.

    Cons

    Hard to find any. The commute is a pain when I have to drive, but free shuttles and free Caltrain with 3G/4G cards mean I have alternatives that allow me to be productive instead of twiddling my thumbs in traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more employee-level engagement with industry.


  2. "Fast paced and always exciting"

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

    Pros

    You get work with some of the smartest people in Silicon Valley as well as in our offices around the world. The flexible work structure ensures people are always working on highly levered tasks they're excited about.

    Cons

    Working at a really fast pace also means you're forced to make sacrifices in order to get a product out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
