I worked at Facebook as an intern

Pros

Everyone tries their best to help you have the best experience as an intern in the company.

Cons

The free and tasty food (especially deserts) really didn't help me keep very fit.

Advice to Management

I love the culture of openness at Facebook and I'd love to see that it was maintained even when Facebook grows larger.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    High responsibilities from day one. High powers from day one. The company lives up to its motto of move fast and don't be afraid.

    Cons

    Hard core environment, if you don't deal well with extra responsibility and require strong leadership instead of autonomy you probably won't have the best time

    Advice to Management

    Keep the hacker culture, beware process and corporate behavior. Always do the right thing for the world.
