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

    Pros

    You're treated like a human being. You're well-fed. The corporate structure is designed so you can float to where you think you can do the best work with minimal hassle. Acquiring needed equipment is low friction. Above all, we believe in what we're doing.

    Cons

    Base salary is a little below comparable companies. Young employee base can sometimes lack tact or manners. High density office plan presents parking issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scaling to tens of thousands of employees is the biggest threat to the company. Keep everyone focused and keep teams small and nimble.

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

    I have been working at Facebook as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Being surrounded by great minds who always strive for to better themselves
    Flexibility and Freedom to fix/work on the things you want to work on.
    Free food doesn't hurt either - and it is GOOD food.

    Cons

    my only real complaint is that you sometimes reviewed solely based on the impact your work has rather than the quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See the cons.
