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

Pros

- you can choose your team, and, later, you can change it;
- the company is a significant contributor to open source;
- there are lots of smart people around you;
- plenty of perks (great and varied food, company shuttles, public transportation, bike repair, laundry & dry cleaning, banking, ...)
- powerful hardware to develop on

Cons

- no 401(k) matching;
- some teams work around the clock;
- things are constantly changing in the development process;
- preference for "generalists", who know a little bit of everything and nothing particularly well; it might be hard for "specialists" to find a good team that favors depth vs breadth

    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.
