I have been working at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Terrific Company, great internships that have high risk and reward.

Cons

Full time employees have on-call shifts, which means being available 24/7. But interns don't have to do on-call

Advice to Management

Keep the openness of choosing your own team for full time hires

    I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interns are well treated with challenging and meaningful projects, amazing perks, housing, transportation, free food. talented, fun and hardworking colleagues. In addition, over the summer, we received famous political figures such as Hilary Clinton , Malala Yousafzai, Buzz Aldrin.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the projects can be challenging which may result in short nights of sleep (5-6 hours) and if you are interested in business and engineering, it may be hard to be exposed to both at the same time due to the scale of the company.

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

    Pros

    Engineers get a lot of responsibility and room to grow in their careers. You work on things affecting hundreds of millions of people directly and there are not many places where you get that much impact. You learn a ton about the world.

    Cons

    With great power comes great responsibility. Sometimes you need thick skin to work on user-facing things.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that we maintain quality employees as we grow.
