    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great deal of flexibility
    Most amazing senior management and some of the best mentors
    The perfect place to kickstart your career and learn about the corporate
    A dynamic organization with well defined structures. But not so rigidly defined that you lose out on flexibility
    free food, great parties and offsites, intellectual and passionate people and the best culture

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Great work culture. They literally move fast. Things get done very quickly. People are helpful, and some of the best people you'll meet.

    Cons

    The ambiguity in work sometimes gets to you. No career path, and proper mentoring that you can claim. Everything with regards to personal or career development is laden with jargon and hyperbole in discussions. Things like "you have to move to the next level" are what you'll hear, but not how to.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to employees about career paths, and do something for everyone who works for you. If you let people go because you have decided to downsize in the back-offices, even though they are stellar performers, you aren't really living up to your values.

    Pros

    Apart from the obvious salary perks and the added benefits. The best reason is you get to work on something you like, also the sense of significance and contribution. The code is shipped sometimes in a week and even in three days. There's no next year here.

    Cons

    Though there is this sense of contribution, working in facebook soon begins to take its toil on you. There is hardly any time left for doing anything else and the projects at work are often so complicated that they occupy your mind long after you have left the office.

    Advice to Management

    The tricky questions are fun but I think are unnecessary
