    Pros

    Amazing office Good Parties Brand Name Work is great Free Food Pick up and Drop

    As a contractor no matter what role you are working on, the company can easily get rid of you. With just a month's notice you could be informed that your team is going to be dissolved.

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

    Pros

    State of the art campus with onsite gyms, spa, hair salon, arcade and more. Outstanding internal tools, both software and hardware, for work and collaboration with colleagues around the world. Top of market pay, even before you count the benefits. Free food is just the beginning. Probably the most underrated perk is a free cell phone with international data roaming. (It's a corporate phone, but personal use is allowed within reasonable limits.) Promotion cycles are twice yearly, more frequent than some other tech companies. Promotions come quick to top performers, who are lavished with "refresher" or "additional" equity awards.

    Cons

    Exhausting performance review process. It feels neverending. Performance ratings are a bit too formulaic, and thus can be gamed to an extent; the system undervalues certain types of work (for example long-term, risky projects) that other companies would find valuable. Traffic around the Menlo Park (MPK) HQ is atrocious. Parking is extremely constrained. Corporate shuttles are reliable and the route network covers a huge amount of the Bay Area and then some (there's even several daily shuttles to Santa Cruz) -- but the seats are often too narrow and uncomfortable. To give you a sense of the problem, most economy class airline seats are wider and more plush!

    Pros

    - streamlined and over the top onboarding and bootcamp program - flexibility to choose career path (at least for core software engineer) - LOTS of resources to learn, including office hours by current employees - Great free food on campus

    Cons

    - Software Engineer at certain level is expected to get promoted within a limited amount of time, but pretty reasonable - They have tools in house, so might take time to relearn and get used to

    Pros

    Open environment: You can know what other members are doing and join their meetings. Good documentation: This is very important when you start from zero. They have good document classifications to find whatever meeting records or previous decision reports. Free food: free food!

    Cons

    It is not a cubicle office so you don't have any separation between your neighbors.

    Pros

    You get to work with the smartest people, the best tools and the most amount of data whilst influencing billions of people. Also the perks like free food and travel are pretty good!

    Cons

    It's so fast pace that it's always intense, the documentation gets left behind and there's a focus on getting things done reasonably well but not always perfectly
