I worked at Facebook as a contractor

Pros

Great place to work and get things done, tons of energy, no obstacles to creativity, very, very, very talented people

Cons

Do not even consider a full-time role here if you are over 40. The average employee is very young, and doesn't know how to treat more senior people with anything more than patronizing, sophomoric arrogance, you know: "You might think you've done this before and know what you're doing, but even though I've never done it before I'm going to be able to do it better than you." The company is lucky that it is being buoyed by ad revenue, which makes up for a lot of short sightedness when it comes to management and the efficiency brought by experience

Advice to Management

Open up to a truly diverse workforce that is designing social networking tools for the whole world, not just for the people who work at Facebook today.

    I worked at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are great, and there are some very smart an engaging people

    Cons

    Many departments within Facebook have a maturity problem. If, you are 40 or older, I would not apply.

    Advice to Management

    Ms. Sandburg as the COO needs to evaluate the lack of maturity of those who surround her...the lack of experience is going to cost Facebook potential law suits and brand reputation
