    I worked at Facebook for more than a year

    Pros

    I only worked here as a contractor for two years but it was the best work environment I've been around. Most perks are shared with contractors with few exceptions (no gym, no laundry and contractors weren't typically invited to offsite after work events)

    Cons

    None that I can think off

    Pros

    Great on resume, and products to work with. People are nice but they will lie to you and make you work .

    Cons

    They will lie to you about conversion and let you apply and at the last moment tell you they cant hire you. average I hear of ppl who get converted is 2 years. So if you decided to take a contract offer remember you have to wait two years.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive compensation package (base salary, bonus, equity) Great benefits (free food) Open culture (weekly Q&As with Zuck and other executives) Helping build a product that people regularly use Great experience to build your resume 4 month paternity/maternity leave fully paid

    Cons

    No slacking off allowed! Teams run lean and move fast. Despite how young the company is overall, there still seems to be an age bias for older, more experienced employees, rather than more impactful employees, regarding recognition and promotions. At least in Finance.

    I worked at Facebook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing food, great campus and latest technology.

    Cons

    Management lacking in leadership and communication. Blamed is passed down to front line employee's. Very poor work life balance. Half the department left due to politics.

    Pros

    Really smart and great people to work with! Management is not snooty and willing to listen to inputs. Managers have the attitude of pulling their sleeves up to reach common goal...very collaborative!

    Cons

    Things are constantly changing and sometimes you never know what's coming... but you know you have to get it done. It could be exciting but could also be a bit tiring sometimes...

    I have been working at Facebook

    Pros

    Facebook has incredible camaraderie as well as benefits. Everyone is friends here, we work hard, but also have a great time and love coming to work every day. We get free gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner daily from an amazing culinary team. We play basketball every week, have free beer on Friday and get to ripstick around the office. We even have games rooms and a ping pong table! The people who work here are incredibly high caliber individuals. The recruiting process is tough!

    Cons

    Some of the younger folks here (and there are many) have never worked anywhere else and they have no idea how good the place is. This often leads to a sense of entitlement which would never fly at another Company. Having said that, we all benefit from the extra perks that get put in place. Philz Coffee!!
