I have been working at Facebook full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- You are measured and rewarded on impact and not the other usual factors such as your relationship with manager or how many hours you have to work
- Great open culture where you can question anything and anyone. You are encouraged to take risks in order to achieve something bigger.
- Great place for mentorship - bootcamp is amazing way to understand company culture, build relationships and get exposure to various technologies. Beyond that there are tons of individuals that you just need to ask and they will help you in every way possible.
- Facebook has some of the friendliest individuals that I have ever worked with
- Great perks! food, amenities, health, dental, gym, and the list goes on and on
- Believes in compensating you what you are worth instead of trying to lowball and counter offering once you have a competing offer.
- You are truly working on things that are making a difference in people's lives

Cons

- If you really want to set yourself apart, know that you are probably working with some of the brightest in the industry. You better be on top of your game :-)

Advice to Management

Continue to maintain the culture that exists. Let's ensure it doesn't turn into another one of those other tech giants!

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The technical bar across the company is really high, which makes it a great place to build great things and learn from your peers. It has a ton of benefits that make your life very comfortable (laundry, commute shuttles, restaurant, gym) but nothing beats being surrounded by great people.

    Cons

    Not really a con but it's a place to do some hard work and get stuff done. The technical bar being as high as it is, the engineering teams are usually short staffed and some pressure builds up.
