    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Facebook is great. We have amazing perks, financial freedom to do amazing work and coworkers that will push you to become a better professional and person.

    What sticks out most to me is that the company is accutley aware that it won't be able to reach it's long term goals without tenured (more than 2-3 years) employees. It goes to great lengths to remove everyday hassles from your life so you can spend more time doing the things you love outside of work and when life happens (babies, relocation, bereavement) it's most amazing perk shines through. The people around you come together to support you and give you the time you deserve to move through life changes.

    They really look at it through the lens of "if the employee is happy and taken care of then they'll do the best work of their career". This doesn't mean that everyone will work 80 hours a week. If you question this, ask to see the office at 6pm. It's pretty empty. Most people leave closer to 4.

    Cons

    Is hard to imagine another company to work at. This forces you to put a lot of trust in Facebook. We don't have a ton of great examples of companies caring for someone through their career so it's a bit like walking into the unknown.

    I worked at Facebook full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The perks are unbeatable and it's a great place to start a career, learn how to function in a fast-paced environment, and learn the principles of work/life balance.

    Cons

    I experienced stagnated growth. Internal mobility was hard, especially for those of us who were high performers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just say that you want to grow your people, actually help them find opportunities to stay with the company and grow beyond their current roles.

    Pros

    My manager and team are phenomenal. Everyone I have gotten to work is brilliant, respectful, courteous, helpful and fun to be around. The mission at Facebook is motivating and speaks the truth about the culture.

    Cons

    This company is very fast-paced. If you are not willing to put in the work and time, you will fall behind. You need to be self-sufficient to be successful here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Would love to hear you speak more on campus. I am completely motivated by you!
