    I worked at Facebook full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -life changing experience

    -work on world class infrastructure

    -dynamite resume material

    -make hundreds of connections with other people in the industry, as they filter out to other companies over several years you will have connections everywhere

    -Interview training. Your interview game for the next job will be vastly improved.

    -Perf evaluations pretty fair.

    -Worth it. You can pivot your experience at Facebook into a job anywhere else, often with less stress and more money. Lots of companies use Facebook a recruiting filter.

    Cons

    -Work/life balance.

    -The technical bar for managers is very high, which means a lot of them aren't actually very good managers.

    -Perf evaluations are about impact, and that basically means glory laden projects. Don't count on your manager, you need to make it rain.

    Advice to Management

    When I think of IC quality at Facebook, my impression is universally excellent, exceptions are even better than that. I have never seen a greater concentration of awesome.

    That is not what I think of the quality of managers at Facebook. Some are pretty bad.
