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

    Pros

    - Incredible benefits - Excellent compensation that rewards strong performance - Lots of autonomy - Tons of room for growth - Very transparent from the top down - Strong leadership - Intelligent and caring colleagues - The most fair and well thought out review process you will find everywhere - Exciting work

    Cons

    - If you don't learn to make the work life balance work for you, it can be exhausting. But you'll also be given lots of support with this if you ask for it. - It doesn't matter how good you are at your job, chances are you're going to be surrounded by a ton of other people who are just as good if not better. Imposter syndrome is real, but if you got an offer, you probably belong here too.

    Pros

    - You work with a team of brilliant folks - As an intern, you get to do valuable work not just random projects - Great work-life balance - You have a manager who oversees your work directly and provides a sense of direction on what to do and how to do it

    Cons

    - Expect a lot of meetings. Might not be a con for some but I generally hate meetings. - You will likely get sick of the word "Impact". LOL!

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The impact of what we do is great, the people I get to work with are amazing - very smart, collaborative, and nice. There's a great social vibe. Incredible benefits (what did I do to get all this?), and a strong sense of ownership and growth.

    Cons

    You will have to be proactive and deliberate about work-life balance. While you can have a great wlb, many prefer working harder to advance faster. Sometimes it's easy to forget that this is a choice. While within teams it really feels like a startup that moves really fast, sometimes there's some politics when interacting with different teams.
