    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
