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

Pros

You get to meet a lot of really smart people. Also, there are a lot of benefits and there's more coming.

Cons

The company is growing big really fast. If you aren't in product teams, it's hard to get much love and as the size increases this is more apparent.
It's not a small company anymore and over the time I was here, I have seen the start up culture slowly mature.

    Advice to Management

    Management is aware of the employee scaling issues and works on "drift" control constantly.

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

    Pros

    Some perks, smart people, learning opportunities, great networking with very accomplished silicon valley folks, office space is fun (maybe too distracting)

    Cons

    Turning corporate, need to know the right people, holier than thou attitudes, veteran employees talking about their money and yachts, culture and communication is breaking down (Move fast and fix things), useless spending on parties/shirts/ice cream shop/laundry/etc just to keep young employees feeling like they are still in undergrad, Nepotism!!!
