    I worked at Facebook as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The brand name of Facebook carries some power. Also the offices are nice except for the lack of AC in the area I was in.

    Cons

    For lower level employees, Facebook doesn't care about you in terms of salary and is ready to cancel you contract at any time. My contract was canceled for money problems.

    Advice to Management

    Make the lower level employees feel valued and have opportunities for personal growth.

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

    Pros

    The biggest problem with working for Facebook is showing up to work every day (well, not every day since the work-from-home policy is pretty liberal) and thinking, "Man, this must be a bubble. I mean, there's a bouncy house, 10 scotch bars, and they're roasting a pig in Hacker Square."

    But, if you can stand that, the rest is great.

    Cons

    Gotta be REALLY careful with data. Despite what you see on Facebook, there is nothing that Facebook is more concerned about than protecting its users' data. People "disappear" from time to time, and the reason is usually that someone *&(^ed up and did something with data that they shouldn't have, whether accidentally or intentionally.

    Advice to Management

    Careful with the B-School BS. Let's keep it a no-nonsense, engineering-focused company. Stop using the (non)word, "learnings." Squash any hint of bureaucracy.
