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

    Pros

    You are empowered to work on the right tasks in the right way and ultimately in charge of your changes until even after it has been deployed. Rather than everyone second guessing your decisions, it is up to you to do the right choices and stand behind them. Strong focus on less distractions and very rigid tooling around everything. Good benefits all-round, even including such details as phone plans, mortgage brokers and covering internet bills during the time where we are all forced to work from home. The company is still growing despite the current challenging climate. And it all starts with a very complete onboarding programme.

    Cons

    Some of the technological choices may seem a bit odd at first, but make a lot more sense once you understand the reasoning and process behind them and the tooling tends to address any shortcomings there would have been.
