Excellent, fun, productive, stressful

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Menlo Park, CA (US)

ProsIt's a young and energetic company. Teams always switch seats so there's a high chance you can sit a few feet away from Zuckerberg and Sandberg and these famous people.

ConsWork can be stressful. Everyone works really hard. The company is getting bigger nowadays so you have less and less ownership of a certain product. Gender ratio is really bad.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire fewer interns because some of them don't get work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
