    I worked at Facebook full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing tools and code that make implementing new services and features extremely quick with high quality.

    Cons

    Too much proprietary tech, hard for you to keep in touch with what the rest of the world is using when Facebook is run on mostly in house built tools.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what made people join Facebook in the first place. It is not always about the money and prestige.

    I was referred by a friend and after some back-and-forth they set up a phone screen via Skype and collabedit.com. The feedback was very quick after the initial phone screening.
