I worked at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lot of independence in choosing your projects, recognition for innovation, complex problems, daily code pushes to production, awesome peers.

Cons

Constant inflow into upper management chain from other companies, so harder to move up the ladder if you're not on a crucial project.

Advice to Management

Recognize engineering contributions in non-product areas for promotion as well.
