    Pros

    The work done here actually makes a difference in the world. The company really wants you to be your authentic self. Benefits are great, the work is great and you can have an impact regardless of your title.

    Cons

    as it's gotten bigger, there is a cultural shift toward passive aggressiveness. We're all supposed to be so nice :)

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to say "NO" The human mind is hierarchical and it matters where you are in an organization and what your title and levels are. to pretend otherwise, is asking for a major problem in the future.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazingly progressive in so many aspects. Being bold and taking risks while thinking outside of the box are truly appreciated. Feedback is openly given and requested at all levels and incorporated into changes (where warranted) quickly.

    Cons

    The pace is fast and furious. Onboarding process re: tools available and how to access could be beefed up a bit, but would need to be on a department level to be of significant value.
