    Former Intern - Intern in Menlo Park, CA (US)

    I worked at Facebook as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Really fast moving hack culture is exciting.
    Smart people all around.
    A good name in the industry.
    Food is absolutely delicious.
    Intern program is very well planned out.

    Cons

    Recruiters are very slow at times.
    Little to no opportunity to move around in different departments.
    Hiring is a bit too fast right now, need to slow down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more personal connection with employees.
    Don't disregard your remote locations. Vancouver is a good example of a great office turned into nothing.

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

    Pros

    The culture is really amazing and in my opinion even better than the media portrays it. The perks are wonderful, but the professional experience is even better! You are free and expected to guide your own career in a way that makes an impact on your goals. This place is incredibly mission focused and product driven. The speed at which facebook moves is astounding at this size. I feel the energy everyday working here.

    Cons

    Not a huge con, but the mission and energy can take over and have you spending all hours on the job. You have to either possess or quickly gain time management skills. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's the closest thing to a con I can think of at fb.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in good user experiences, maintain consistently high level of transparency across entire org. Keep personal growth opportunities plentiful.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Menlo Park, CA (US)

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

    Pros

    Facebook was a cool place to work, but the company is a behemoth now. The perks are great and there are some really incredible people and projects at Facebook.

    Cons

    Work / life balance is a bit off here especially if you live in the city. The perks are great but the expectation is to stay at the office for ridiculous hours. Also, as the company has grown so have the politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix some of the culture and politics, but overall doing a good job

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

    Pros

    Facebook has a really move fast culture and has some of the most talented people in their respective industries. It's truly a production based dynamic where they expect a lot out of their people. Our team's typically run lean but we're growing fast. Obviously the benefits are second to none. Hands down the best company I've ever worked for... and probably the world!

    Cons

    If I had to complain about anything at Facebook it would be my commute from San Francisco. Note that they offer a terrific shuttle service however being on the road that long everyday eventually wears on you. Once you're on campus, it's all good though!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on maintaining our amazing culture as we further expand around the world.

    I worked at Facebook full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and opportunity to succeed.
    Facebook is about creating impact and will support your efforts to fast track initiatives. Surrounded by smart, intelligent colleagues.

    Cons

    Open and transparent work ethic.
    Be sure to be seen to be speaking with the right people and keep in the company of those who have the majority say and the loudest voice, without this you will not succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the time to dig a little deeper and understand what does go on beneath the surface, with a company who is hiring at great speed this will be come more important if you do not want to become a bureaucratic organisation.

    I have been working at Facebook

    Pros

    The mission is incredible. Make the world more open and connected.
    From the delivery of the product to the infrastructure the company focuses on impact and truly is disrupting the industry.

    Cons

    As the company grows the culture changes a little which is expected but the politics in certain areas has gotten to be unbearable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring from larger companies that Facebook openly says are slow doesn't make sense. If we think xxx company is slow and lacks innovation why would we hire so many people from those companies?

    I worked at Facebook full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great atmosphere
    - High degee of ownership in your role and in side-projects
    - A lot of freebies (food, sport facilities, etc)
    - Competitive compensation

    Cons

    Not many cons. The company moves fast and sometimes the information can be scattered across the organization, hence will take a certain level of proactivity to gather.
