    Still huge opportunities & growth potential

    Partnerships (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsWork Flexibility: you have a work description, but you can basically do what you want
    Work environment: you work with the smartest people of the industry, tackling the biggest problem of recents years (connecting 1 billion people together)
    Work culture: perks, couches, free food etc.

    ConsFacebook becomes your work, you don't open it in evenings or weekends anymore

    Advice to Senior ManagementHiring is the single most important thing for Facebook. True in the engineering department, but also true in the sales team. I feel this rule isn't applied well enough in sales: I keep asking myself how some people got hired here.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
