    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The working environment
    The people
    The level of growth means there is lots of challenging work to do
    Flexibility with working hours & possible to work from home when needed
    A good place for working parents
    Fantastic benefits & perks

    Cons

    If you are focused on job titles & climbing a corporate ladder it's not like that at facebook. Career growth & promotion is possible but the structure is quite flat. You don't need to take the people management route to get ahead. You can choose the individual contributor route & become an expert in your space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep training new people managers to ensure they have the right skills as teams grow.

    Pros

    Being part of a company that is helping connect the world, not just people but connecting and growing businesses. You are surrounded by not only some of the most innovative intelligent people, but people that want you to succeed which develops a very supportive environment. Great benefits, growth and career opportunities (globally not just in the US)

    Cons

    Most roles are Full Time (5 days a week) due to the teams being lean. Limited options for those looking for 3/4 day positions.

    Advice to Management

    Teams are lean - You need to be able to Manager and develop your team but also be hands on.

    Pros

    Compensation, Mission, People, Culture and Product. We can also add awesome offices location and perks.

    It can be pretty easy to lose track of reality. Sadly the vast majority of companies don't offer the same environment.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I joined Facebook about four years ago and it's by far the best thing that wever happened to me. Every day I'm challenged to do what I do best, while driving impact and (in)directly contributing to the overall mission of making the world more open & connected. What I also love is that jobs and structures are created around a person and not vice versa. Yes thing move fast, change quickly, shift around but you get the trust and comfort to make impact. It all comes down to taking ownership.

    Cons

    The lean structure and importance of individual contributors have created a structure where ownership is key. You don't always get guidance on what or how to do things. For some people this might not work.

    Pros

    I'm learning a lot from the people I work with, both technical and soft skills.

    Cons

    Large company, teams doing overlapping work across timezones. Difficult to coordinate.

    Advice to Management

    Keep coaching your reports so we can keep improving
