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

Pros

There's something really special about the Facebook culture. Employees are passionate about the work and projects. They are some of the smartest and dedicated I've worked with, and also a lot of fun to work with (seriously). Everyone is focused on the mission of the company, which is awesome. Excellent benefits and employee perks - onsite healthcare, chiropractor, acupuncture, gym and many others I haven't tried out yet. Another huge bonus for me is the support I have here as a woman in the tech community, it's pretty amazing.

Cons

The only downside I have experienced is the office location, nothing with the company itself. It's out of the way and nothing around the campus.

Advice to Management

Keep it up. I'm impressed with the level trust, support and autonomy management provides employees to run with an idea and own a project.

    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.
