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

    Pros

    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.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    The culture is top notch. There is a lot of impactful work here. Leadership does a great job of ensuring their teams are appreciated, motivated and in the right position to succeed. Compensation and Perks are highly competitive

    Cons

    It's a company that is very much in the weeds of social and economic challenges. It's a tricky balancing act. It almost doesn't matter what products you work on. Whether you agree or not with what's in the media - you have to be strong and focused in order to do your best work. Bottom line - it's easy to get distracted with it being a company in the middle of so many worldly issues - but this right here is the place to do your most impactful work.

    I worked at Facebook full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pretty good/ competitive salary Excellent health insurance Solid name recognition for future jobs Top notch perks

    Cons

    Leadership moves from crisis to crisis to crisis. The attention focus is relatively short on the hot issue of the moment and that trickles down to every org. You can be working on the number 1 goal or project from Jan - June and knock it out of the park. Then by July everyone's attention has shifted and your work is no longer relevant. A lot of institutional knowledge is lost this way. The company skews young as well, so there are a lot of inexperienced people who want to make their mark/get their promotions and they work hard but don't get the guidance that would help them work smarter. The result is that some teams take "done is better than perfect" and "ask for forgiveness rather than permission" to another level, which can make work tedious. Almost everyone comes from elite schools and has great stats so some really lean in extra hard into making themselves stand out, sometimes in ways that aren't the most useful or healthy. There's also a hierarchy Technical people on top, then Business people (cause they make the money) then lawyers then everyone else. People in ops often are at the bottom of the totem pole. Transferring internally can be especially challenging, as there are no extra considerations for internal hires.

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay, flexible working hours, rewarding work and smart, warm work colleagues.

    Cons

    Everyone works on different software/storage solutions; if you need to find a document, check quip, box, drop box, google drive. Diversity: I know a lot of work has been done but would be great to have more women, PoC and different nationalities. Onboarding: a lot of remote onboarding has been watching a lot of videos that sometimes are over 2 hours long. Would be great to have more live virtual training.

    Pros

    Great benefits (PTO, paternity leave, wellness, cafeteria, etc.)
