    Pros

    Freedom to make change happen where it's needed. Learn something new everyday, you're challenged to be a better person constantly. If you find a project that develops a new skill, it's encouraged heavily. Your team is your family and friends, everyone is close and also open to working together even if not in the same department. London offices have great programs in place to meet new people and do new things. Everyone is super smart, no one feels like they are lagging or dragging you down.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be a challenge, depending on the season. Prioritisation can be difficult, there are so many shiny things to work on constantly and you can't always drop everyone to work on them.

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

    Pros

    - Incredible benefits - Excellent compensation that rewards strong performance - Lots of autonomy - Tons of room for growth - Very transparent from the top down - Strong leadership - Intelligent and caring colleagues - The most fair and well thought out review process you will find everywhere - Exciting work

    Cons

    - If you don't learn to make the work life balance work for you, it can be exhausting. But you'll also be given lots of support with this if you ask for it. - It doesn't matter how good you are at your job, chances are you're going to be surrounded by a ton of other people who are just as good if not better. Imposter syndrome is real, but if you got an offer, you probably belong here too.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, keep an eye on employee burnout, keep supporting your people and keep pushing them, and the rest of the world, forward.
