    Pros

    On-Site Cafe, good people, clean facilities, free parking

    Cons

    Management Engagement could and should be better. Some areas treat their employees great and others don't even take them out to lunch. The outsourced IT department could be better, they work very slow. Career path is not as clear as you may think. The Cafe is good but should have more healthy options for lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with care, be more engaged with them. Many people see it as managers can't interact with employees because of a superiority complex. Keep investing in technology; this is the way FB will grow.
