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

    Pros

    Facebook deeply cares about its employees and has built a compelling culture around support and growth. Career growth opportunities are plentiful. If you don't like the team you're on or don't get the support you want from your manger, Facebook empowers you to find new teams or projects. Facebook wants its employees to be invested in their work and to feel connected to its larger mission. If large scale opportunities and growth are important to you, Facebook is a fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    Facebook's culture is demanding and fast paced. The greatest aspect of working at Facebook is that everyone is very motivated and very smart. The problem with this is that they all expect the very same of you. Holding a very high bar for excellence can certainly be demanding so it's important to make sure you're always carefully paying attention to your own personal work/life balance.

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

    Pros

    - Incredible benefits - Excellent compensation that rewards strong performance - Lots of autonomy - Tons of room for growth - Very transparent from the top down - Strong leadership - Intelligent and caring colleagues - The most fair and well thought out review process you will find everywhere - Exciting work

    Cons

    - If you don't learn to make the work life balance work for you, it can be exhausting. But you'll also be given lots of support with this if you ask for it. - It doesn't matter how good you are at your job, chances are you're going to be surrounded by a ton of other people who are just as good if not better. Imposter syndrome is real, but if you got an offer, you probably belong here too.

    Unfortunately I joined the company during the COVID-19 and initially it was a bit hard to ramp up on culture, get to know the team over the VC, have a chance to work and walk in the office rooms.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, Management, Openminded, just to name a few. I worked at couple of companies and FB is the best one yet. People you get to work with are really passionate about what they do, and very helpful. In addition you can be yourself here, and you are the only one that drives you carrier, so if you have drive, you will be very successful here.

    Cons

    Would love to see tuition reimbursement as an option.
