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

Pros

Wonderful amenities - the food is just outstanding. Everything is home-made and natural or organic. Wide variety with lots of restaurants, and it's all FREE.
Beautiful campus, bicycles are available for either going from building to building or going for a ride in the afternoon
Lots of places to relax or lie down if you need a break
GREAT coffee and a Philz coffee on campus
Sweet Stop shop if you need a sugar lift in the PM
Fantastic help desk for IT issues. Anything you need to do your job is given to you. Laptops and phones are top-of-the-line.
Something is always happening on campus, whether it's a vendor, a celebrity visitor, or Mark Z making an appearance.

Cons

Work is always abundant and there is a chaotic atmosphere
The feel is always "do it right now"
People are under a lot of pressure to get things done
Atmosphere can be impersonal because you're so "hooked in" to everyone else electronically, that you can work from home very easily

Advice to Management

Great place to work, keep it up!
