    I have been working at Facebook full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been at a lot of different companies before finding Facebook, and I could not be happier. Everyone in management is understanding, and always wanting to mentor. The benefits are unreal, and stock is awesome!

    Cons

    All the cons are the same as any big company. Sometimes it can feel like everything is changing and you don't know what is going on, or the competition is too high. Just a culture and work switch if you are use to mid/small size companies coming to Facebook.

  2. "Great job, but not very challenging"

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture is incredible. Full of opportunity. Best place I have ever worked and hope to be here a very long time.

    Cons

    Not a great place for people who are not open to change, as your work will constantly be changing and you need to adapt. Also not great for those who do not want to be challenged.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    #1 - It's a mission driven company and we are contributing to a greater good. Love the fundraising features and amazing to see how many dollars have been raised. Love features like safety check keep people safe during natural disasters. Love the stories of connection - family members meeting for the first time due to finding each other on Facebook. Love the support we provide to small businesses which wouldn't be where they are today without instagram or Facebook. #2 - The growth opportunities. I've learned more and grown more in the past year than any other company #3 - I have 3 children and feel I'm able to balance my work and personal life.

    Cons

    Facebook moves at an incredibly fast pace. Personally this is what I love about it and what has provided me with learning and growth opportunities, but it is not for everyone.
