    Pros

    The compensation is good but you'll spend most of it paying for housing in and around the Bay area. Also helps that you can offset your food expenses at home if you eat on campus. I'm based in MPK so the on/off campus perks are a plenty. You got gyms, an onsite dental / eye clinic, a massage therapist, an acupuncturist, access to campus Ubers and shuttles, the many many food cafes, sweet shops, food trucks, dry cleaning, Ship-It, a nail salon and barber shop, a bike rental/bike repair shop, and if you need to learn how to bike lessons, you can get that too. AR/VR, a print shop, ERO groups, life-style sessions, micro-kitchens - God I miss the micro-kitchens, the numerous off-site perks and discounts, the Dogs@FB Workplace group, the Tiger King@FB Workplace group, the Sad Meals WFH@FB Workplace group, no formal dress code, a park on the roof, ginger shots, Mark's weekly Q&A, other Q&As with various leaders and world experts, work from your desk or work from some random spot, the library, the product vending machine, the FB 15+ cause of how much you'll eat, the health benefits for a single person with no dependents, company stock and 401K, company products (Portal, IG, etc.), and company swag. Yes this is a real review and no I'm not being paid to vomit sweet nothings. In truth, I've never worked for anything like FB and I've worked for some top notch companies at different phases in my life. I love my team, my peers, my org, my leaders. I know it's going to be hard for me to find a replacement should I, someday, decide to leave FB. And while I realize FB isn't rainbows and unicorns cause it has issues, anytime you have people of different ages, genders, nationalities, political leanings, etc. in one place you're going to have issues but its pretty damn close to perfect. I'm over 40 (I feel 20) so I understand that for others my outlook may be a bit different and hell who knows in a few years I may feel different about the company. One thing though, I don't regret the interview loops nor my decision to leave another top tech org in the Bay area. I look forward to FB's evolution and seeing it continue to be successful.

    Cons

    PTO is alright. The Performance Review process is stressful, feels like I'm prepping to take the SATs, GREs, LSAT or MCAT every 4 months. I'm saddened by the prospect that one day I may no longer view FB as a glorious place and like others pursue other shiny objects in hopes of making more money with less effort.
