Employee Resource Groups at Facebook  

We build products to bring the world closer together, and this means we need a team that understands and reflects a broad range of experience, thought, geography, age, background, gender, sexual orientation, language, culture and many other characteristics. To achieve our mission of bringing the world closer together, diversity is a must-have, not an option. One way we support and strengthen diversity at Facebook is through Employee Resource Groups, they are influential networks of people who share similar values of supporting and encouraging diversity.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Incredible benefits
    - Excellent compensation that rewards strong performance
    - Lots of autonomy
    - Tons of room for growth
    - Very transparent from the top down
    - Strong leadership
    - Intelligent and caring colleagues
    - The most fair and well thought out review process you will find everywhere
    - Exciting work

    Cons

    - If you don't learn to make the work life balance work for you, it can be exhausting. But you'll also be given lots of support with this if you ask for it.
    - It doesn't matter how good you are at your job, chances are you're going to be surrounded by a ton of other people who are just as good if not better. Imposter syndrome is real, but if you got an offer, you probably belong here too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, keep an eye on employee burnout, keep supporting your people and keep pushing them, and the rest of the world, forward.
