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

    Pros

    1) everyone is insanely smart. so it's a great place to progress.
    2) despite 1) people have no ego. no one is territorial. you don't like something and think you can do better? go at it.
    3) the internal culture build around the "hack" directive is very strong, very motivational and makes me feel very comfortable
    4) immense data to analyze
    5) everyday a chance to make an impact

    Cons

    ok, so it's not in downtown san francisco. that's really because i have to say something here.

    Advice to Management

    stay focused and keep shipping

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    1. Great benefits and perks
    2. Passionate and dedicated employees
    3. Fun and exciting environment

    Cons

    1. No career growth and lack of internal career paths
    2. Low compensation
    3. Lots of politics within the company (many ex-Yahoos and AOL employees are in management)
    4. Bad culture and habits brought in from ex-Yahoos and AOL employees are making a big negative impact on culture and morale at the company
    5. Mark Zuckerberg, aka Zuck has received good ratings in the past but of late he has been very distracted and not focused on how the company is run internally, he should own it and step up by making management changes to course correct the ship before it becomes another AOL.

    Advice to Management

    Do something to address the low compensation issues and morale/culture issues within the company, make changes to management particularly in the engineering and sales organizations since the same traits that they had at Yahoo and AOL are starting to show at Facebook as well.
