Pros

- you can choose your team, and, later, you can change it;
- the company is a significant contributor to open source;
- there are lots of smart people around you;
- plenty of perks (great and varied food, company shuttles, public transportation, bike repair, laundry & dry cleaning, banking, ...)
- powerful hardware to develop on

Cons

- no 401(k) matching;
- some teams work around the clock;
- things are constantly changing in the development process;
- preference for "generalists", who know a little bit of everything and nothing particularly well; it might be hard for "specialists" to find a good team that favors depth vs breadth

    Pros

    - You get to work on pretty much whatever you suggest
    - Good benefits

    Cons

    - Because people get to work on whatever they feel like there are a lot of resources that are wasted
    - There is a lot of core work. Eg. You have to get through x amounts of requests from users per days

    Advice to Management

    There does not seem to be any plan as to where or how anybody can make a career on Facebook, in particular in User Operations in Dublin as the management team seems to not have put much thought into career development.
