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

Pros

Work with great people and learn things. Moves really fast and new projects are being built all the time. The culture is very open. Very few things to worry about so that you can focus on your stuff.

Cons

Long work time, but that is somewhat related to how much impact you want to make. Also everything (e.g. meals, food, gym etc.) tends to keep you at the campus. Not sure if this is good for family.

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

    Pros

    - Salary
    - Free food
    - Can work from home anytime, no penalty
    - Smart and fun team, quick hard-skill growth
    - Lot of open-ended problems, lot of low hanging fruits, lot of possibilities (you just don't see it from outside)
    - No such thing as under-utilized/over-qualified for a job. When you stuck in that situation, you are not challenging yourself enough

    Cons

    - tax :'( (well it's everybody's problem. But I heard some startup give you salary; tax-less)
    - got some problem with HR regarding compensation. But it was my mistake for being too late.
