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

    Pros

    Open culture

    Our mission here at Facebook is to give people the power to build communities and to bring the world closer. This is something we live by in the workplace as well. No idea is a dumb one and you are encouraged to make an impact.

    Facebook tends to take simple life stressors away so that you can concentrate on what's important; bringing the world closer.

    Some of the perks include: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are offered to you at no cost. You receive assistance when you are a newly expecting parent. Facebook also has great wellness package to the point they will reimburse your gym membership fees and the list goes on and on.

    Furthermore, Management understands that you are a valuable member of the team and you are treated as such. It can be surreal sometimes.

    Cons

    There are absolutely no cons to working here.

    Advice to Management

    Limit how many performance reviews an employee can write.

    I worked at Facebook full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexible work hours, generally passionate and smart people

    Cons

    Encountered lots of nasty things. Toxic environment, racism, favoritism, etc. Overall not nearly as bad as Uber, but once you are a certain size and you've been there long enough you'll encounter these things.

    Talked to a bunch of people before I left and management issues (incompetency) were very widespread, as fb favors internal promotions over outside hires.
