Featured Review

Former Employee - Technical Principal

I worked at Facebook full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- It promotes openness and transparency - Still a lot less office politics than most other companies out there - Great perks and benefits - Overall a chilled and relaxed work environment - They... really care about their employees

Cons

- Not the same as it was five years ago. The age and expansion kind of affected the overall cool factor of the company - The offices outside India are much better in terms of following the Fb... culture than the India office currently

Current Employee - Director

I have been working at Pinterest full-time for more than a year

Pros

Awesome working atmosphere here to work.

Cons

They make you work overtime
