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

Pros

Really great work culture, monthly hackathons are great way to prototype. Some of the features on FB today came from them.

Cons

Interns weren't put into same housing so couldn't easily travel

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

    Pros

    The campus is beautiful. The work is immediately gratifying, as you're working on the website/app that literally over a billion people use the world over. The people are great, the food is free and incredible, and the benefits and perks in general are flat out impeccable. The work is challenging, and you're always growing. This place definitely has got many, many strengths.

    Cons

    The work-life balance can be difficult. You're judged by the amount of work you put out, which is fair, but to keep up you may need to regularly work 10 hours per day. I'd often see people put in even more hours each day. But then again, if you're incredibly skilled, you could probably get away with less than 8 hours per day.

    Advice to Management

    You're making smart decisions. Keep doing that.
