    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Open, positive culture (it really is): goals are assigned to you at the beginning of the half mostly basis your strength areas

    - Opportunity to work with one of the industry leaders in online media - the platform and its underlying are a tech enthusiast's dream

    -Not a 'hire and fire' company. They really care about their employees.

    - Lavish, almost extravagant benefits: you can get spa massages reimbursed, for instance.

    Cons

    - Facebook feels like a young and aggressive teenager. Granted, its prime focus is to grab a bigger slice of pie from Google but that seems to be driving its entire business strategy.

    - Hyderabad undergoes re-orgs way too frequently, which has resulted in mass attrition with several senior managers moving on.

    - Under-hiring talent: There is no difference between the role/designation of an ISB MBA with 3 years of solid work ex and an undergrad fresher from a local college. HR needs to work out this motivational deterrent else attrition is set to rise.

    - Inverted pyramid hiring in the sales team: Way too many senior and mid-level managers are being hired as individual contributors for roles that are given to college grads in other locations. Limited growth opportunities because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Please rethink your hiring bar, especially in Hyderabad. Some of the full-timers can barely communicate and several mid-level managers are NOT a culture fit.

    I have been working at Facebook full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Facilities given to the employee, to travel to work and at work are very good. They try to provide a very comfortable enviornment to work.

    Cons

    1. The Hiring department of the company is below par. Only importance is given to Work experience not essentially in the area of expertise required. Employees coming from Premier graduation and Post graduate insitutes are considered at the same level as that of candidates from local institutes(probably done to save cost of relcoation, not expected of such a big brand)
    2. The talent across Hyderabad floor and across international offices (I have visited 2) are extremely mediocre, essentially because of point number 1.
    3. The attitude of collaboration and working as a team, is severly lacking in most hires in the company.
    4. The middle and senior management is hogwash and power rests in the hands of 1/2 managers who play office politics well.
    5. Middle level managers are totally impotent, Because essentially they have no power which is attributed to managers in a usual organizational set up.

    Advice to Management

    1. Improving hiring techniques, more experience =! Good hire, Education Pedigree is equally important
    2. Do not undergo Reorganization frequently, classic strategy to lose good talent, Though one may be arrogant enough to attract good talent time and again but things do cap off and Name spreads like fire in the market!

    I have been working at Facebook full-time

    Pros

    stocks that they give and the travel and food along with it. Also, the kind of people that you work with

    Cons

    not too much really for the enterprises to use out of facebook hence it very hard to sell, mostly lacking innovation for enterprises.

    Advice to Management

    be innovative so that there are more ways for us to attack the customer and take the sales ahead.
