    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work on whatever you believe will be best for the company. Operate however you like, no one is checking up on you to make sure you're in the office etc. You are treated like an adult and are highly valued, and expected to make your own decisions. Benefits / perks are amazing. You'll be working with very intelligent and efficient people. Pragmatic company with very little time wasted discussing trivia. Some of the...

    Cons

    Some infrastructure for developers on the less beaten path is not as mature as in rival companies. Having no public facing cloud services like AWS / GC, the FB services are less reliable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the hiring bar high.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Facebook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Smartest people I've ever worked with - A real chance to make impact on people's life - Solid compensation package

    Cons

    - Work/life balance. My team started at 10-11am and some people (me included) didn't leave before 9-10pm - Company values doesn't always work when it comes to your performance issues (i.e. your manager is always right no matter what you have in mind) - Doesn't feel like a "move fast and break things" at all

    I worked at Facebook full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - nice work environment - tooling and documentation - peer relationship - code quality & good practices

    Cons

    I’ve lost the desire to advocate on behalf of Facebook. - micro-management - Over-represented majority that are leading (ie. white men / native English people..) - Behind inclusive and people oriented speeches : use of leverage to put under constant pressure employees - Rewarding : You will be rewarded if you know how to market yourself and your work.

    Advice to Management

    Take your responsibility

    Facebook is by far the best place I’ve worked. They hire smart but humble people and do their best to remove roadblocks and enable people to do their best work .

    Cons

    Its not for everyone . You have to be very autonomous and have a lot of self drive to succeed .
