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

Pros

- surrounded by talented coworkers everywhere
- no-nonsense environment, freedom to set your own goals, very little politics
- managers that actually understand tech, at all levels

Cons

If you're not careful, it's very easy to get sucked into the work (as you're usually doing what you like and want), pull crazy hours and burn out; good managers can detect that in advance and prevent it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to keep the awesome culture alive. Keep the hiring bar high.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, fun people, guaranteed you'll learn a lot.

    Cons

    Some teams are on the larger side, but that's not a huge deal since you can still make a big impact.
