    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.
