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.

    I worked at Facebook

    Pros

    Innovative company that moves fast and isn't afraid to take risks. Lots of energy and creativity going on in all parts of the company- particularly around product. Interesting and intelligent people to work alongside you from all sorts of backgrounds. Your coworkers become your friends. Great food and benefits for all employees. Cannot complain about the benefits.

    Cons

    Have to like challenges and moving fast. Facebook is not a place to stay the course or do what is safe. It's a place to take risks, challenge things, and move with changes in the market on a daily/hourly basis.
