    Pros

    People, positivity, mission and creativity are all massive pros. The company is very open and always asking for feedback. I would highly recommend take the jump and applying.

    Cons

    I honestly cannot think of any cons. Obviously the food is free,so you need to ensure you don’t indulge and keep a balanced diet.

    Pros

    Amazing work environment. Challenging atmosphere, but everybody is willing to help. The authenticity of everyone is one of the best things. The perk of having breakfast, lunch and dinner is ridiculously good!

    Cons

    Sometimes can be too US centered, but they try constantly to balance this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! The main challenge is to maintain the atmosphere with such a great growth rate.

    Pros

    > Open Culture: decisions are announced openly, without sugar coating and pretence and it comes from the very top! Mark, Sheryl and all the leaders are very straight forward on their answers during the weekly Q&A - there is nothing they shine away from and, when they don't know much about the topic they either find somebody that does or follow it up.

    > Real flat organisation: many other companies misinterprete what employees mean by 'flat organisation' - they are not talking about the number levels between junior and senior people, but on how open senior leadership is. FB doesn't make that mistake, you can talk to anybody here, from managers to directors and VPs and they all listen to you attentively, as a peer, not as a 'superior'. Employees at FB are all valued the same.

    > Perks are amazing: it is not about the amount of perks, but how those perks make your life much better. Instead of trowing whatever at employees, FB conducts regular surveys to understand which benefits are valued or not and adjust them accordingly. The benefits provided by FB are geared towards making our lifes easier, so we can focus more on giving people the power to build communities and bring the world closer together.

    Cons

    > In the spirit of moving fast, our tools are not extremely sophisticated as they are being continuously developed. It is a price I am happy to pay to have the benefit of doing whatever I need to accomplish the company's goals.

    > Working with smart and ambitious people is amazing, but can, at times, make you feel an 'impostor' - I think everyone here does feel like that sometimes, but if well taken, can only make us continuously improve and become a better professional

    Advice to Management

    > Continue listening to everybody's ideas, no matter from which level, even if sometimes they sound a bit off, most of the times they have some wonderful insights.
