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

    Pros

    Facebook is a great place where you can have ownership of your projects and actual impact in the company. At other tech companies, you're a cog in the wheel. At Facebook, you really do have the opportunity to build out the next wave of ideas, strategy, and product. Facebook has plenty of growth opportunities as the company is still growing, despite the pandemic. New products are being launches every day and each day is a new adventure.

    Cons

    Sometimes leadership makes controversial decisions that the company may not agree with, however they host weekly Q&As with full transparency around their thought process behind the decision, and are open to criticism and feedback. You don't get that at every company and I really respect that leadership is so thoughtful in that way.

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

    Pros

    - Good pay - Nice, smart people - You have support for everything. There is a team at Facebook for referrals, DEI, recruiting tools, compensation, immigration, etc. If you need something, there is definitely a team for it. This is a pro and a con. - Worked here for 4 years and genuinely felt like my manager had my back.

    Cons

    - Large, convoluted teams. There are so many recruiting support teams that you don't know who to turn to for help at times. Also, there are times when I can manage something myself, but am forced to hand it over to a supporting team because it's "their job". - They place a huge emphasis on doing recruiting projects. If you're not doing a recruiting project, forget about being promoted. Doing excellent recruiting and closing lots of roles is NOT enough. This emphasis on project work leads to people literally making up meaningless projects just to say they're doing extra work. It's a part of the culture that really needs to change.

    Pros

    I've been so impressed with how seamless, organized, and informative onboarding has been considering everyone has been remote. Even during these times, I have been checked in on regularly and I feel very supported by and included in my team. Everyone has been very warm and friendly. The company has been doing a lot of exciting things. The benefits are fantastic

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

    Pros

    - After 3 years in the office living and breathing the beautiful campus and delicious food - I have never been more impressed with this company and how its navigating the impacts of COVID 29. They have made remote work seamless and enjoyable. - Management is incredible. Facebook invest so much time and money in their managers and it shows. - Work life balance is pretty spectacular and there is a lot of mental health support. - Internal mobility is great - I was a recruiting coordinator for 2 years and finally applied/ started interviewing. After interviewing for 3 roles, I landed this incredible role on a team I admire. - Lets not leave out the perks - commuter benefits, laundry, food, medical, dental, equipment, events (pre COVID) & more

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons outside of the 15% of my job that's administrative (but who doesn't have that)
