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

Pros

You are working on a very interesting problems, which actually affect more than a billion people. You also learn a lot from people around you.

Cons

For me team meetings were not very productive, and I didn't feel I understood half of the stuff my teammates were talking about.

Advice to Management

Dedicate more time on explaining high level view of what everyone is working on, so that interns have better view of the product they're working on.

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

    Pros

    The engineers here are awesome people. Incredibly helpful and caring about the interns, very driven to make sure the interns succeed.

    Cons

    Lots of pressure. As intern, they expect you to perform at a level of full-time engineer by the end of your 12 weeks, so this is not an internship to take if you want a joy-ride.

    Advice to Management

    Let the interns have more collaborative projects.

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

    Pros

    Great work culture; everything taken care of. If you need anything to do your job better, you'll get it. Intern projects actually have an impact & used in production.

    Cons

    Work culture/flexibility can encourage longer hours -- make sure you manage work/life balance. Can be difficult to get accustomed to infrastructure/etc. and getting up to speed is hard for an intern who is only there for a short period of time.
