    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.
