    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Work with smart people that actually care about the world
    - Regular Q&A's with amazing leadership (Mark Zuckerberg & Sheryl Sandberg, etc.)
    - SO many resources to excel in your job (tools, people, classes, etc.)
    - Open culture (I'm very open with my manager and my team) and feedback is always encouraged
    - Lots of programs to stay healthy (gym, Health Center, Dentist, Nutritionists, etc.)

    Cons

    - Commute from SF to Menlo Park is far, but the shuttles are really nice and comfortable
    - Teams can be spread out across different offices, which means potential trips to those offices, but also means team culture may vary across offices

    I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment really does seem like the perfect Instagram account.

    Cons

    Glass ceiling hovers like a dark cloud when you're a contractor. Very few get hired on. You have to become friends with someone in management or go get a degree in data. It doesn't matter if you are an introverted, creative with badass analytical and support skills.

    Advice to Management

    Have a sit down with your direct reports more often, even the ones who aren't your besties. They, too, have something to offer.

    Try team building; encourage genuine conversations; uplift downtime; smile more.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Um, where to start. Basically the hype is true. I'm not an engineer/dev type. Perhaps this is more standard for those career tracks. However, you'd be had pressed to find any company providing this kind of environment to its employees. Salary is great, bennies are great, managers are awesome, culture is fantastic and the company its doing really well. Its stable.

    Cons

    Don't really have any. I've heard some people say they would prefer to have an office vs open floor. Well guess what, everyone from Mark down is sitting in the open floor plan, so no one is getting a raw deal. And I love it personally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
