    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Facebook deeply cares about its employees and has built a compelling culture around support and growth. Career growth opportunities are plentiful. If you don't like the team you're on or don't get the support you want from your manger, Facebook empowers you to find new teams or projects. Facebook wants its employees to be invested in their work and to feel connected to its larger mission. If large scale opportunities and growth are important to you, Facebook is a fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    Facebook's culture is demanding and fast paced. The greatest aspect of working at Facebook is that everyone is very motivated and very smart. The problem with this is that they all expect the very same of you. Holding a very high bar for excellence can certainly be demanding so it's important to make sure you're always carefully paying attention to your own personal work/life balance.

    Freedom to work. Not micro managed

    Deliverables are more important than the people at times

    Pros

    Gives new grads the opportunity to be CEO of their own Book of Business. Grounded in the org by support from employee resource groups. Vertical focused so you build our specialized expertise.

    Cons

    Difficult to move around in the company before 2 years of work in the same role.

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

    Pros

    - Lots of autonomy - Amazing benefits. - Individual goals are well-defined and strong performance is well-awarded. Big investments in reviewing performance of employees minimizes the bias and politics. - You will be challenged on a regular basis so you need to continue up-leveling your game.

    Cons

    - Bottom's up culture gives a ton of autonomy to teams and individuals but on the flip side projects that require collaboration across multiple teams are quite difficult to prioritize and execute. - Focus on achieving goals and making a meaningful impact every 6 months can be stressful at times.

  5. "Love it!"

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

    Pros

    - Ambitious mission - Great support system to go after big bets - Incredibly fair - Great benefits

    Cons

    - It can be mentally exhausting listening to all the hate in the media towards FB. I sincerely hope that the PR folks @ FB are working to change the company's image and showcase all of the great things we're doing to improve privacy, limit fake news and improve people's lives. - Work life balance isn't there, esp. if you're an ambitious professional. There are a gazillion things going on and if you want a balanced life, you will miss out on growth opportunities.

    Getting to be yourself; being given the tools you need to be successful; supporting managers; access to new technology; being on the cutting edge of work; lots of opportunities to advance or move laterally; hard work is quickly rewarded

    Compensation, benefits and work-life balance are great! There are plenty of opportunities to work on meaningful and impactful projects. Management has been super supportive with the transition to remote work and working from home due to COVID.

    Cons

    Learning curve can be steep, particularly in the first few months.

    Pros

    In areas of transparency, caring about talents, moving fast, and innovate with true results... best company I've worked for.

    Cons

    Constant scrutiny from media with magnifying glasses (without sufficient fairness)... not an issue from within but from the external environments.
