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

Pros

- you can choose your team, and, later, you can change it;
- the company is a significant contributor to open source;
- there are lots of smart people around you;
- plenty of perks (great and varied food, company shuttles, public transportation, bike repair, laundry & dry cleaning, banking, ...)
- powerful hardware to develop on

Cons

- no 401(k) matching;
- some teams work around the clock;
- things are constantly changing in the development process;
- preference for "generalists", who know a little bit of everything and nothing particularly well; it might be hard for "specialists" to find a good team that favors depth vs breadth

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

    Pros

    I've been able to define my career trajectory here by focusing on projects that I think will have the highest impact on the business. It's up to me to fight for the resources (people, time, money) I need to complete the project. But at the end of the day and after a lot of hard work, Facebook is a place where I can take a vision and take it to fruition.

    Cons

    The usual scaling issues with companies in this stage of growth. Luckily we have a great culture, but sometimes it's hard to manage the expectations of your role and prioritize important projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use data to monitor employee engagement and productivity closely.
