    Pros

    Making a difference in and out of Facebook. Mission of connecting people is beneficial to millions of people. Compensation and perks very good. Lacks bureaucracy. Good equipment. Self-starters can go far. Free, fresh food and drinks. Paid parking.

    Open plan offices can get noisy/crowded. Everyone has headphones.

    Allow more time for individual/team projects started from the 'ground up'.

    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!
