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.

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

    Pros

    _Everyone is world-class in everything they do, from PMs to Legal to Engineers who are some of the best around.
    _The challenges are huge, the impact is vast
    _Anyone can propose ideas and try them out as an experiment, the best experiments will make it out to 1 billion people!
    _Free food
    _Tons of awesome perks

    Cons

    _Can be hard to manage work/life balance sometimes, but that's mostly because there isn't enough time in the workday to work on everything I want to work on...

    Advice to Management

    Management can sometimes steer the company in another direction too fast which can cause organisational whiplash. Try to plan out a bit farther ahead and have less knee-jerk reactions to change everything all at once.

    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.
