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

Pros

Huge impact on billions of people while working with awesome, insanely intelligent coworkers at a pleasant office. Great free food and perks. Lots of autonomy and big problems to solve. Engineer driven culture. Down to earth, available CEO.

Cons

Being on-call and dealing with lots of product uncertainty. Long commute if you live in SF. Work-life balance tends to steer toward work.

Advice to Management

There's nothing I'd advice them that I wouldn't and haven't said in person.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The campus is insane, great place to be, delicious food, positive environment overall. Young team overall, great benefits.

    Cons

    The company has grown a lot and with that came politics and an unusual (at least for me) level of competitiveness amongst colleagues. Constant re-orgs make it a little difficult to grow, as you end up changing managers all the time and you role changes as well. The advertising product is far from stable and they keep changing everything all the time, which confuses the team and the marketplace (and makes the sales process more challenging).

    Pros

    Highly motivated environment. Good compensation and benefits. Decent outdoor activities. Projects are interesting and real-word problems.

    Cons

    Office location is little obscure and isolated. Food is free but not variety of choice. I have to bring my own food.
