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

    Pros

    I moved here from a larger stable company where I was also working as a software engineer, and I have just been wow-ed! Apart from the amazing perks, I work with a set of very dedicated, determined and intelligent folks, which is really the best part of working here.

    - Co-workers are mostly rockstars!
    - Lots of resources to learn - 7 months into my job and I feel I am already a much better engineer.
    - Lots of importance on what YOU want to work on, versus what your manager thinks you should work on. You can freely talk to your manager and find an intersection between your interests and the company/product needs.
    - Everything is automated (again by rockstar teams), and processes are made as simple as possible.
    - Great pay, stocks and bonuses.
    - Amazing perks! Lots of food choices, great campus, regular team happy hours with great food, and the list goes on and on.

    Cons

    - Work-life balance almost 0 on weekdays! I spend the entire day working/thinking about work. But that is what I was looking for. Weekends are upto you - most people do not work.
    - Lots of process changes in short periods of time - so you are constantly climbing the learning curve. But this maybe specific to the product I work on.

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

    Pros

    Nice fast paced culture, that encourages folks to take risks.
    Smart set of co-workers.
    Nice perks. Laundary, food, loaded micro-kitchens, pay etc etc.

    Cons

    Can be a little haphazad.
    Managers are promoted in-house, and sometimes they can be inexperienced or not very good.
    Timelines can be aggressive.
