    I worked at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    Ability to solve complex and interesting problems with truly world-class teams. Focus on people.

    Cons

    Working in such a large campus, in a very crowded tech ecosystem, there are a lot of potential distractions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work — minimize distractions, focus on people, and continue building stellar teams.

    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.
