I have been working at Facebook full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Amazing work environment (meritocracy, smart people, great technologies, ...)
- Great perks (food, snacks, health insurance, gym benefit, laundry, ...)
- Very little corporate overhead.
- Feels very much like a startup, despite being over 8 years old.

Cons

- Time-sink: it's easy to neglect everything that's not work related.
- Decent salary but nothing extraordinary.

    Pros

    Great perks / benefits directed at removing friction from your life so you can focus on working and playing. The company still "feels" small, energetic, and focused despite its medium-sized-ness. Awesome accessibility to some of the best and brightest people in the tech industry... working with really smart people is very satisfying.

    Cons

    You have to be aggressive and an entrepreneurial self starter to be recognized here. Either that or you need a boss / advocate that will do this for you. Actions speak louder than words so you have to be comfortable with doing rather than talking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep us small and focused. Really focus on managing your talent.
