Pros

Facebook has amazing perks for employees and tried really hard to be the best employer in the valley. Their benefits are next to none and the company is genuinely interested in ensuring that people are happy and stay for the long run. Also the people in the company are really smart and hence it is easy to have a super enriching experience working here.

Cons

The work atmosphere is intense and too engineering centric. Some employees have risen quickly as they have been in the right place at the right time but are not necessarily the best for their role.

    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.
