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

Pros

College campus type atmosphere; sometimes you don't even feel like you are at work.
Food, and lots of it.
There are some really terrific people who work here.
IT needs are very easy to get handled and the vending machines are a huge plus.
Good benefits package.

Cons

Constant re-orgs and changing priorities can make it hard to keep up.
Glaring differences between good managers and bad managers.
No work/life balance; long hours; must work a lot just to stay afloat; difficult for those with families and/or small children.

Advice to Management

Managers should take more time to make sure their people are not dying a slow death due to the pace. More encouragement and time for training or personal growth.
