    Former Employee - Global Sales in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Facebook full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great atmosphere
    - High degee of ownership in your role and in side-projects
    - A lot of freebies (food, sport facilities, etc)
    - Competitive compensation

    Cons

    Not many cons. The company moves fast and sometimes the information can be scattered across the organization, hence will take a certain level of proactivity to gather.

    I worked at Facebook

    Pros

    The work culture here, at the time I interned was what kept me motivated due to its highly structured and efficient coordination with several departments. Work life balance was brought into, and meshed well with the Facebook environment to keep things interesting in HQ by having several company events,

    Cons

    I found myself in search of more work. I felt that I was an intern was not efficiently used to help push the company forward.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer III in Menlo Park, CA (US)

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

    Pros

    - Open culture: problems get discussed openly and fixed, not just being gossiped in the background
    - Great infrastructure, engineering talents: jobs get easier & more satisfying, you can grow faster than ever before & learn tons of new things on daily basis

    Cons

    - You often have to do crazy amount of work in a very short time
    - Not a startup anymore: You can't get super rich while waiting for some IPO. The stock value still grows, but already quite expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing awesome work, provide more and more opportunities for the employee to grow and learn new things

    Pros

    Zuck is a legend in his own time, his Friday Q&A's are can't miss and it is awesome to hear him handle the tough unexpected questions.
    Perks are world class
    Leadership listens to challenges that employees are facing and for the most part makes changes to correct.
    It is a fun culture and we have some pretty legendary parties
    It is stunning how transparent leadership is with the whole company.

    Cons

    The commute to Menlo Park
    Occasional Politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep facing the tough challenges head on
    Open a San Francisco office, this will eventually be a weakness because all younger companies are located in city.
