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

    Pros

    I joined Facebook a few month ago and I couldn't be happier.

    I am amazed how this company has managed to keep its culture and how everyone lives by them everyday and it sets the tone for the best collaboration.
    Nothing here is someone's else problem you come in and it's your job to fix and make the whole machine function better.

    Internally transparency is incredible, and if you are unsure about something, a direction, or a decision you just ask and people will help you find the answer.

    People work hard but because they want to. Even at times when it's stressful, the work life balance is good enough that you can go home and enjoy a nice evening without overthinking.

    Cons

    Nothing related to Facebook, but to the fact that it is a big org and things can take a bit of time to move, but the company is not afraid to find new ways to move forward faster.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Facebook (London, England) in May 2019.

    Interview

    Standard process: firstly phone interview, then a series of onsite interviews. Firstly behavior (nothing special, no "tricky" questions, two algorithmic interviews(there were 5 easy-medium leetcode questions overall), then system design. The system design was hard for me, I had a strong feeling that I failed.

    All the process from the first contact to offer took 3 months.

    Interview Questions
