    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    The scale, with over a billion user worldwide wide, you would be hard pressed to find another company with the reach and impact that Facebook has.
    Its a design led organization: Designers do way more than just make things pretty. They drive product road maps, craft and execute at a very high level, and collaborate cross functionally.

    Cons

    You will feel overwhelmed when you first start. That feeling will subside. At facebook you will have the best resources and support to help you ramp-up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your employees.
