    Exhilarating

    Pros

    When I first stepped into this company I was extremely nervous and wasn’t sure how I would perform. It didn’t take me long to realize how much support you are given from day 1. I’ve met some of the smartest people in the industry and have never met a nuisance (at least until now). Zuckerberg is a great CEO and he’s constantly innovating to make sure not only the company succeeds, but bringing the world closer!

    Cons

    You are in charge of your journey and it will only go as far as you take it. It’s really important to be transparent and driven to show that you care and are willing to put in effort otherwise you may feel like you’re stuck.

    The benefits will lock you in

    Pros

    I gained great organizational experience working at Facebook. It helped me ship code at scale and realize what makes a product successful. The benefits were amazing, but most of the time they will mask the cons, which keeps you here longer than you may want. The teams I worked with were all exceptional, there wasn't much drama and everyone could get there work done effectively

    Cons

    - I was drawn in by the prestige and the idea that I would have "impact" with billions of people. You start to realize this "impact" might not all be positive, but it's always framed that way internally. Ultimately, the impact is setup to keep the ad dollars rolling in. - Innovation was stifled because of metrics. Leadership is often too scared to try innovation. The biggest efforts were around copying competitors products, not building something innovative. - The performance reviews every 6 months and the culture of shipping "impact" take a toll on mental health, which is exacerbated when working from home without any of the perks of the office to take the edge off. Overall, there are many great tech companies out there that you'll be able to learn a ton from where you could be much happier and paid a little less.

    Pros

    The perks! The access! The experience! Having it on your resume!

    Cons

    No room to grow, moving “up” and changing roles can be impossible. The people culture can be cut throat as people are looking for a their next opportunity and are grasping for impact as the expense of others.
