I worked at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Facebook is a doggedly open and honest company, and it's by far one of the best places you can go to kickstart or mature your career.

Cons

Working in a remote office can substantially limit your career growth potential. If you're in a non-sales, non-engineering role and you're interested in staying for the long haul, be prepared to accept the high possibility of a move to the Bay Area and an hours-long commute.

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

    Pros

    - Problem personalities, egos and politics fairly minimal. Managers are pretty good at minimizing and not rewarding this behavior.
    - Fantastic benefits: three great free meals, fully loaded snacks, actual travel and training budget for all levels of employees.
    - Professional, patient, open colleagues (for the most part).
    - Make a case for what you need to do your job and you get it. No struggles, no hassles environment.

    Cons

    - Large company environment: lots of noise, chaos, lack of planning
    - People are still people and in any group environment they will show their stress profiles (self-centered, inconsiderate, domineering, lack boundaries, fighting over resources, pushing agendas for the sake of face/ego)

    Advice to Management

    - More training for individual contributors on effective communications and teamwork
    - More training for individual contributors and managers on being positive, constructive leaders

    Pros

    Voted one of the best places to work, year after year.

    Cons

    To be honest, it all boils down to personal preference.
