    I worked at Facebook as an intern

    Pros

    - challenging and impactful project with a lot of ownership
    - great benefits
    - supportive environment and helpful coworkers and mentors

    Cons

    - not a lot of documentation because of culture of moving fast

    Pros

    Many benefits for interns:
    - corporate housing
    - visa sponsorship
    - high payroll
    - unlimited food, drinks ect
    - special events for interns (NBA, Halloween event etc)
    - interns work on actual products (they are able to break things)

    - many more I forgot to mention

    Cons

    - at the time they had hundreds of interns yearly, not every one get to work on interesting stuff, an intern may be assigned to heavy duty team which doesn't have time to babysit them (although there were only several cases I know of)

    I worked at Facebook as an intern

    Pros

    Interns are treated like full time employees, projects are meaningful and challenging, campus and perks (free food, free laundry and dry cleaning, relocation, bike program, wellness reimbursement) are out of this world. Company is very mission driven and this shows in day-to-day work.

    Cons

    High learning curve, at least for SWE work. Sometimes feels like you get information overload internally, with so much going on all the time.
