Current Employee - Recruiter
Current Employee - Recruiter
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

- Benefits for full time employees
- Food (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks)
- Q&A Panels with industry and cultural leaders
- Vibrant Community
- Passionate team
- Diversity
- Work Hours / work life balance
- Culture of Hack

Cons

- If you're contract, ask your recruiter the differences between working contract and full time. Negatives for contract are no pto, can't go to companies parties, off-sites, events or even some Q&As, no bus pass, not the same laundry service, different orientation. Sometimes seen as a second class citizen vs. full time.

- The only other con i worry about is development. In recruiting, there are a ton of recruiters but all the recruiting managers were hired from other companies and continue to be hired form other companies. when will they start developing their own ppl?

Advice to Management

Work on promoting from within (see my advice from cons). In recruiting, all of the managers are hired from other companies vs. internal promotions. Provide more cross-functional work and opportunities

    Pros

    The best reason to work at FB is definitely the people who work there. I've made so many friends and everybody are friendly to each other. Also they are actually intelligent people. I mean, even the cook was a student! :-)
    BTW cook, the food is for free and I love it.
    Free food and drinks (even Red Bull and ice cream on summer).
    Nice parties on top of the roof. OMG. The bbq was awesome.

    Cons

    Paper plates and plastic spoons etc. I dislike!
    Salary is ok. I should have asked for more. Oh well.

    Advice to Management

    Cancel all meetings. :-)

    Perks were good. Salary was OK.

    Cons

    IT dept. in Facebook is the worst place to work. They just hire and fire people for no reason.

    Advice to Management

    Change the IT management.
