    I have been working at Facebook full-time


    Great culture of moving fast, open and transparent, focus on impact
    Excellent people that are both smart and empathetic (not found in all tech companies)
    Managers are focused on growing people long-term


    You'll often get responsibilities faster than you can comfortably deal with them. Not a place where you can phone it in.
    Company is growing fast and so there's overhead associated with that.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Facebook in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    -HR person got in touch with me the day after I applied and scheduled a technical phone interview
    -45 minute phone interview where I had to code using CollabEdit
    -Talked about one of my projects in school first, then 1 coding question: Given a matrix, write an algorithm where if an element in the matrix is 0, turns all the elements in that row and column into zeros
    -Thought it went pretty well, I solved the question (although I think I took too long) and the interviewer was very nice and put me at ease but I didn't get an offer. I will try again though :)
