    I worked at Facebook as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Facebook is an incredible dynamic place filled with lots of extremely intelligent and interesting people. The work they give is meaningful and the freedom even more so. I think this is probably one of the best places to work in the world, if not the best.

    I could go into all the perks, but honestly, the best part are the people and the work itself and the respect you are given. The office in MPK is also simply stunning.

    Cons

    Only con for me is that if you dislike the mission of Facebook, it can be a bit difficult to work there. Also some of the perks were so good that I felt that they could have toned it down a little bit.

    Work life balance could be better, but its a high paying interesting job with lots of perks. So honestly not much room to complain here either.

    I worked at Facebook as an intern

    Pros

    They really treated us well, had lots of ways of getting support, and generally people were willing to answer our questions, even if we weren't working on the same team. The food options were amazing as well!

    Cons

    Your experience will depend largely on the manager you are paired up with. Some managers are really helpful and give you good advice, while others don't seem to care that much about their interns and often give inaccurate advice.
