I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The people here are all really smart. The emphasis is on output and you're pretty much in control of your hours, it's normal to get out in the middle of the day to hit the gym, etc. Perks are also great, can't beat the food and the micro-kitchens. And every change you make to the code instantly impacts hundreds of millions of users.

Cons

At least for internships, teams are somewhat hit-or-miss: some teams work on really exciting products while others, not so much.
