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

    Pros

    State of the art campus with onsite gyms, spa, hair salon, arcade and more. Outstanding internal tools, both software and hardware, for work and collaboration with colleagues around the world. Top of market pay, even before you count the benefits. Free food is just the beginning. Probably the most underrated perk is a free cell phone with international data roaming. (It's a corporate phone, but personal use is allowed within reasonable limits.) Promotion cycles are twice yearly, more frequent than some other tech companies. Promotions come quick to top performers, who are lavished with "refresher" or "additional" equity awards.

    Cons

    Exhausting performance review process. It feels neverending. Performance ratings are a bit too formulaic, and thus can be gamed to an extent; the system undervalues certain types of work (for example long-term, risky projects) that other companies would find valuable. Traffic around the Menlo Park (MPK) HQ is atrocious. Parking is extremely constrained. Corporate shuttles are reliable and the route network covers a huge amount of the Bay Area and then some (there's even several daily shuttles to Santa Cruz) -- but the seats are often too narrow and uncomfortable. To give you a sense of the problem, most economy class airline seats are wider and more plush!
