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

Pros

Top quality engineers, management who doesn't slow you down or want to track every time you take a poop. Seriously, this place was built for speed. They empower the engineer and allow you to do what you need to get done without fear. At first I just assumed this was like every other corporation who claims to empower their employees and move fast. Nobody wants to move slow but Facebook is serious. It really is different here and in a great way.

Cons

People tend to want to tell you about how they hate facebook or how they don't use it because "xyz" when they find out you work there. I've just started telling people I work at the NSA spying on their porn browsing habits.

The other major con is Zuck never responded to my friend request. I feel so rejected.

I do wish they had a daycare..

Advice to Management

Keep the agility and openness. The Q&A's are amazing and make me feel like I am apart of the company.

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

    Pros

    Opportunities, benefits, perks. Engineers go through a 4-6 week training program and have an opportunity to choose which team to work on. The benefits package is very competitive. On-site perks are awesome.

    Cons

    Other than the commute from San Francisco I haven't found any.

    I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Open culture, smart coleagues, lots of growth opportunities, gourmet lunches, flexible schedule, hard work

    Cons

    Management is a bit non existent, needs to learn to be more transparent and better communicate expectations to newbis. Otherwise great people, honest and smart.

    Advice to Management

    Share more your understanding and vision. Keep up the good work!
