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

Pros

FLEXIBILITY, FLEXIBILITY, FLEXIBILITY

Work where you want

Very flexible schedule. I generally come in to the office at 1pm. Sometimes I leave at 10pm, sometimes I leave at 2am, sometimes [Fridays] I leave at 7pm. Sometimes I work from home. Sometimes I work from Hawaii.
Excellent opportunity. I was promoted within 7 months of starting.
Super flexible management. I told my manager I wanted to work on a new [my own] project; he immediately said go for it. I've been working on it full time for 1.5 months. I told my manager I wanted to move to Seattle. He said okay, look for a team up there.
Awesome food. Awesome amenities.
Smart people. Learn from the best.

Cons

Not as much opportunity for [company] growth as what you'd get at a startup.

    Most current work has a <6 month horizon.

    More data-driven decision-making.

    Pros

    The pros of working at Facebook are too many to list, but the biggest ones are: the ability to shape your work, opportunities for career growth, support from bosses and management, flexible work schedule, and working for a mission-driven company that has massive impact throughout the world.

    Cons

    I really can't think of any cons, as it's been a great ride since I joined earlier this year.
