Pros

A great place to work. Well-distributed culture of seeking impact and keeping productive which, along with a considered hiring approach, means that everyone you encounter is bright and eager to help you get things done. Low-touch management style is encouraged, with focus on growth and getting blockers out of the way.

Cons

High public visibility when you cause the site to crash. No 401(k) match. Hard to keep up with all that is going on.

    Pros

    Facebook is a true mission-driven company. Many companies pay lip service to their mission, but Facebook lives it and breathes it everyday. Zuck is totally committed to the mission of the company, leads by example, and is one of the most visionary people in our industry. The culture at Facebook is very strong, and the people here are incredibly smart and driven. We're working on huge, important problems in the world, and it's fun to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    None. I love everything about this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay true to the mission and continue to focus on the long-term.

    Pros

    - everyone you'll work with here is incredibly motivated to build the best possible product and extremely talented at doing that
    - you're able to make an impact on the product and more generally how things work immediately, without waiting for seniority or a promotion
    - we move fast here, meaning your finished project won't sit around for months before shipping and we adapt rapidly to changes in the market
    - there is no such thing as an unimportant project here - we have so much to do and not enough people to do it that no one spends time on anything that won't have a big impact, not even interns
    - progression in the company, salary increases, equity refreshers, etc. happen in a clear and fair manner
    - they take care of us very well from a perks and compensation perspective - great food, an awesome campus, and more
    - everything is very flexible - as long as you get your work done and make your (very few) meetings, you pick your work hours
    - you have the resources of a larger company, like a mature codebase, helpful abstractions, automation of some uninteresting tasks - all things that let you focus more on the interesting parts of your job rather than tedious setup

    Cons

    For the first time in my life I need to watch my weight due to the awesome food and snack selection
