Approves of CEO

I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

As titled. Also, the company is still growing pretty fast, so there is plenty of opportunities to make big impact.

Cons

Sometimes, people compete too much internally, which could be put stress on some people. The infrastructure still needs some work to be more robust.

    I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Very open culture, very little secrecy
    - Lots of benefits (free food, gym, unlimited snacks, etc)
    - Can easily make an impact as the company is still pretty small

    Cons

    - Intern management was not as great.
    - Won't always get the project that matches your current interests, but it is impactful and challenging nonetheless.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the culture.
