I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Zuck is a legend in his own time, his Friday Q&A's are can't miss and it is awesome to hear him handle the tough unexpected questions.
Perks are world class
Leadership listens to challenges that employees are facing and for the most part makes changes to correct.
It is a fun culture and we have some pretty legendary parties
It is stunning how transparent leadership is with the whole company.

Cons

The commute to Menlo Park
Occasional Politics

Advice to Management

Keep facing the tough challenges head on
Open a San Francisco office, this will eventually be a weakness because all younger companies are located in city.

    Pros

    You can make almost any change you really want to the most popular apps on the planet. How much you do is really a function of how much you're capable of and how much you can back up your decisions.

    Cons

    Guidance is slight, and you have to convince people to ship things after you've already built them, not before. It's a difficult thing to get used to.


  2. "Great company with great momentum"
