  • “Prior to Facebook, my career took me through four acquisitions and one bankruptcy. I viewed all of those changes as an opportunity to learn. Each had its own set of challenges, and I lived in five countries as a result. Now that I’m at Facebook London, I love to explore and learn about this amazing city—the culture inside Facebook and outside the door is so special. I’m also a huge fan of board games and own a couple hundred. When I’m not at work, you can find me with friends and family, playing everything from Feast for Odin to Innovation. When I retire, I really want to make a board game. I know it’ll be difficult but there’s nothing better than a good challenge. More importantly, I plan to focus my energy on doing something to help underprivileged people in my local community, to pay forward what I’ve been so fortunate to experience in my life.” —Allan M., Engineering Director

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

    Pros

    I have worked at lots of other companies and the range of talent, skill, and professionalism usually varied widely. So far my experience at Facebook has been working with amazingly smart, talented, and just super kind, fun people. Forget all the other many perks. This is the best part for me.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are just too many things going on. It’s challenging to put things in perspective and make sure you live a balanced life. It I think you could say this at any job that you truly enjoy.

    Advice to Management

    Try and keep things that are working and modify things that need to be fixed as we scale.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Facebook in November 2017.

    Interview

    It was fast. A recruiter reached out to me for a role at FB. After 3 days, the same recruiter reached out to see if I can do a phone interview with the hiring manager at FB.
