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

Pros

- you can choose your team, and, later, you can change it;
- the company is a significant contributor to open source;
- there are lots of smart people around you;
- plenty of perks (great and varied food, company shuttles, public transportation, bike repair, laundry & dry cleaning, banking, ...)
- powerful hardware to develop on

Cons

- no 401(k) matching;
- some teams work around the clock;
- things are constantly changing in the development process;
- preference for "generalists", who know a little bit of everything and nothing particularly well; it might be hard for "specialists" to find a good team that favors depth vs breadth
