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

Pros

Anyone can make an immediate impact in the organization, especially those at Menlo Park HQ. The perks are great and the culture is awesome.

Cons

In moving fast, process is sometimes disregarded. You have to assert yourself to make your role work because everyone else is too busy and driven to hold your hand.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! The challenge is to maintain the culture and sense of urgency as the company grows and more people are away from HQ

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

    Pros

    The learning opportunity at Facebook is huge. You have so many resources available to you. For new grads, you have the opportunity to treat Facebook like a pseudo-grad-school. The people are awesome and the perks make you comfortable.

    Cons

    Salaries are low. People are mainly driven by passion here, but once they reach a certain skill level they leave.

    Advice to Management

    More incentive to keep people around would be good.

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

    Pros

    Lots of challenging problems to work on. Lots of really smart people to work with. And a really nice environment to work in. 3 meals a day - with varied menus and options. Fully stocked micro kitchens. 21 days vacation per year (plus sick days).

    Cons

    While the site (in Menlo Park) is really nice, its difficult to get to - from almost anywhere. I hate my commute.
