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

Pros

Great culture, easy to talk to anyone you want throughout the company. I felt like I was given a challenging task and able to grow as an engineer.

Cons

Everyone is very skilled. Depending on your team, it can be hard to 'stand out' (debatable as to whether this is a con or not).

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

    Pros

    A dynamic place to work with a lot of smart people. People very willing to help each other out and collaborate. Great perks and the opportunity to have a say for.

    Cons

    Work life balance is very out of whack. You have to work a lot of hours, but more importantly this doesn't seem to make people much more productive.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out ways to make the engineering workload easier, or figure out how to harness people's extra working hours in a productive way.
