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

    Pros

    - Some of the smartest engineers I've ever worked with
    - Great free food and perks (dry cleaning, snacks, etc)
    - Lots of opportunities to make things happen -- great bottoms up culture
    - Mostly very nice people who try to help each other out

    Cons

    - Engineering management runs the show -- you need to suck up to them to succeed, and if you dare disagree, prepare to leave
    - Poor quality management -- many are set there by level and for being smart technically, but aren't good people and career managers
    - Terrible work/life balance unless you actively set barriers and don't do some things
    - Sloppy coding -- hacking is more prized than good structure and elegance
    - A bit overly full of itself and entitled

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective with managers and get people who communicate well and genuinely care about their employees. Some of this can be trained / mentored but there are folks who really just shouldn't be people managers.
