    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    Great perks, reasonable degree of autonomy, a culture of moving fast.

    Cons

    Unreasonable organizational walls. Like someone said, "sales trumps ops, marketing trumps sales, product trumps marketing and engineering trumps product." while these decision making hierarchies are OK in some contexts, they are quite unreasonable in most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus carefully on where decision making sits. There is too much centralization today.
