Featured Review

Current Employee - Technical Sourcer

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

Pros

I have worked at 6+ different companies and Facebook is completely different. They put people first and genuinely care about you. There are high goals, but the team is always there to support.... You have the ability to perform at a high-level here and grow your career at Facebook. For the first time in my life I feel like I am part of a community that cares about each other. Best company to work for.

Cons

Negative press. There is a lot of media coverage that gives Facebook a bad reputation. But this this seriously the best company to work for - just unfortunate that they are constantly on the media's... radar.

Advice to Management

Keep on building community and bring the world closer together. So happy to be involved!

I have been working at BuzzFeed

Pros

Amazing company to work for. Very open, very liberal. They want everything to have a voice. Nothing is off limits.

Cons

Literally nothing. They are one of the best companies I have ever worked with in my time as a writer. And they pay well!

Advice to Management

Nothing. Keep doing everything you're doing. This is such an amazing company to work for and grow with.
