I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Facebook's "move fast and break things" culture avoids assigning blame for reasonable mistakes, which is a wonderful thing. Teams actively avoid separating creation and responsibility, so you are actually responsible for code that you wrote. The engineers that I get to work with are amazingly skilled and good coworkers

Cons

Tools and APIs change, and old systems are actually deprecated and removed, so part of the process of moving forward goes toward staying in place

Advice to Management

Get product and infrastructure teams in the same room with food and drinks more often

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

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy and freedom to take risks.

    Cons

    Sometimes feels like being in high school or college because a lot of employees are cliquey, immature and right out of college. Very hard to move up and favoritism on certain teams.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need more management training because a lot of them have zero experience in people management since they're so young.
