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

Pros

Of course the perks are great, but the most important perk is working for a company I truly believe in. Mark is an incredible leader who wants to make the world a better place, and I love doing work for a mission I care about.

Cons

The employees are tough, and even harsh at times. There isn't a lot of hand holding or pats on the back, and being critical and outspoken is rewarded almost all the time. This can get exhausting.

Advice to Management

Somewhere in each organization, the passion and inspiration from Mteam doesn't trickle all the way down to middle management. Also reviews should be given anonymously up the chain

    I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good code submission process, good food, lots of food, lots of activities, a lot of team bonding experiences.

    Cons

    It's easy to get lost in the crowd, especially since Facebook is growing pretty large.
