    The Company is great, but I worked for an abusive-psycopathic bully boss

    I worked at Facebook full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Company is great, and your co-workers are very smart. Perks on the job are really good.

    Cons

    I happened to work for a bullying boss of the psychopathic kind and that too in a control function. He would put on the charm to superiors, while he abused every one of his team. The entire team quit within 2 years of joining the company and HR looked the other way. The boss was the worst -- he was a habitual liar, withheld information from direct reports on critical matters, took credit for all ideas, blamed everyone on any bad news but himself and his lack of management skill, and even spread misinformation and confusion about individual performance to his superiors. He was stupidly risk taking, which is the wrong kind of person to put in a control function, which left the team very, very worried about compliance lapses. Unfortunately, it was too late before anyone in the team could realize the damage that the jerk was causing and the abuse he had heaped day after day. Everyone decided to seek out better avenues, which was not an issue given the decade + work experience that each one had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure that HR does its job in filtering psychopaths from occupying managerial positions.

    Cons

    Low compensation and long working hours ( though largely a personal choice)
