    Pros

    Amazing benefits, great work life balance, treated me like a full time, really helped in my development

    Cons

    Honestly, no real cons to talk about, perhaps that the opportunity to get a full time isnt really present

    Advice to Management

    They know how to run a company, but perhaps they should be more in tune with their intern development

    Pros

    It may sound cliche but the thing I liked the most was the constant push/encouragement to always do/be better. I felt challenged, "move fast & break things" was real, but I look back with appreciation.

    Cons

    Very intense work environment and aggressive deadlines. Of course, take this with a grain of salt. Our team was small at the time and we had a lot of pressure to deliver.

    Pros

    Awesome workplace with lots of energetic people! It's a fast-paced culture where the only way to move forward is to constantly have an impact. It's a great place to push for fresh ideas and provide input and work on projects that you are passionate about.

    Cons

    Since teams are distributed around other offices, it sometimes takes longer for decisions to be made.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    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.
