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

Pros

A great place to work. Well-distributed culture of seeking impact and keeping productive which, along with a considered hiring approach, means that everyone you encounter is bright and eager to help you get things done. Low-touch management style is encouraged, with focus on growth and getting blockers out of the way.

Cons

High public visibility when you cause the site to crash. No 401(k) match. Hard to keep up with all that is going on.

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to choose what you work on and lots of responsibility from day 1; the people are amazing and the speed of iteration can be crazy.

    Cons

    There's always a lot to do and at times it can be hard to keep up with what's happening around you.

    Pros

    (From the point of view of a new engineer.)
    The culture is motivational.
    You have a lot of freedoms that come with being your own boss but none of the crap that comes with it. Your manager gets that crap out of the way for you.
    People genuinely try to do the right thing and make connecting with friends, family, and your interests a better experience.
    You get to play the explorer. We solve problems that haven't been solved before.
    Hackathons are a thing. And they're cool.
    Free food is pretty cool.

    Cons

    Haven't encountered any. I haven't been here long, though. I will probably have something useful to put here next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the open atmosphere. It motivates me when I feel like I'm part of the company and not just a cog in the machine.
