What people are saying about Meta
a year ago
Bain & Company vs Deloitte vs Novartis vs HSBC India (Still interviewing). How is WLB in these companies? (Which of these have a better WLB?) Location, pay and perks are secondary for me. Looking forward for comments from current or ex-employees of these companies? P.S: No, I am not impacted by recent Meta layoffs.

Hi Fishes, I am a newbie here. Wanted to start here by asking suggestions. I have started my career as a Recruiter in an agency in 2017 and right now working with Meta on a RPO. I would like to make a switch in a product based company. Is there anyway anyone can help me with advice or share any openings. Thanks

- 2.09 Jan 2023Lead Product ManagerCurrent Employee, more than 1 year
- Good benefits - Great snacks - Remote work flexible - Co workers are nice for the most part
- Poor leadership that is not accountable: Company has no idea what they are doing and where they are going. Leadership got there cause they were early employees, they have no experience anywhere else and do not know how to handle the current headwins. - Landgrabbing and Politics - People just climb the ladder creating fake scope and end up in leadership positions with no idea what to do and no experience. - Competitor obsessed. Always trying to copy the latest new app, tik tok etc.
- 2.016 Apr 2015Community OperationsCurrent Contractor, less than 1 yearMenlo Park, CA
- Free food (breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, boba) - Free shuttle (it's free for now, until they become like Google) - Freedom in daily job tasks (not a ton of micro-management) - Looks of internal company groups that perm/temp workers can join
- NEPOTISM, FAVORITISM, AND IMMATURE WORKERS A lot of college grads are hired for temporary positions in the Community Operations department (possibly other departments as well), which calls for an immature work environment. Permanent employees favor certain temp workers, and promote them or give them more responsibilities. College grads look down on people older than them, and permanent workers overlook hard workers (statistics are skewed because there is nepotism and favoritism involved). Some temp workers are undervalued for their hard work and 'let go' without many facts to back it up. - NO WORK LIFE BALANCE, UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS Although there is not a lot of micro-management and you have freedom to accomplish your daily job tasks, the expectations are too high and they are unrealistic. If you don't meet the manager or senior-staffs' quality or quantity, they 'let you go' without a just cause. The judgement system is not fair, because there is nepotism and favoritism among temp workers. Temp workers are shunned and ridiculed in front of everyone during quality review time. This causes the work environment to be very harsh, unfriendly and NOT a fun place to work. Permanent workers are PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE and don't try to help you improve in your job tasks, let alone even train you well when you first started working for Facebook. - NO SUPPORT OR ENCOURAGEMENT FOR TEMP WORKERS Contractors are hired fast and 'let go' fast. It feels like more than 50% of the workforce are temp workers. Permanent workers view temp workers as just their 'slaves' to do their unwanted job tasks. No one really cares about your career growth, nor care about you as a person. You are just a 'slave' to the permanent workers, so move on to a new job when you get a chance. - LOW PAY FOR TEMP WORKERS (HUGE DISCREPANCY IN PAY BETWEEN PRO UNLIMITED AND OTHER STAFFING COMPANIES) The pay is extremely different between Pro Unlimited and other staffing companies. If you were hired by Pro Unlimited, that is good news for you because you are getting paid a lot more in dollars per hour. If you came from another staffing company, you are being paid a lot lower and should try to find a new job that pays more for your hard work. - PERMANENT WORKERS LOOK DOWN ON TEMP WORKERS This does not just exist at Facebook, but it is sad that it happens at Facebook. Permanent workers act entitled, and think that the world revolves around them. - HARDLY ANY TRANSITION BETWEEN TEMP TO PERM If you are a temp worker, don't expect to be hired as a permanent worker. Facebook usually hires permanent workers externally and do not even encourage temp workers to try to transition as a permanent worker. Work hard, but take it with you. Don't expect that they will create a permanent opportunity for you to stay longer than your contract. Once it ends, it's over. Move on with your life and find something better.7

Passionate and smart people; company brand value; lots of different projects/areas to work on

1. Great benefits and perks 2. Passionate and dedicated employees 3. Fun and exciting environment
1. No career growth and lack of internal career paths 2. Low compensation 3. Lots of politics within the company (many ex-Yahoos and AOL employees are in management) 4. Bad culture and habits brought in from ex-Yahoos and AOL employees are making a big negative impact on culture and morale at the company 5. Mark Zuckerberg, aka Zuck has received good ratings in the past but of late he has been very distracted and not focused on how the company is run internally, he should own it and step up by making management changes to course correct the ship before it becomes another AOL.13

Engineers are expected to be very independent and proactive. You will growth a lot as an engineer and you will work with very smart people.
It seems chaotic and un-structured. Your direct manager plays a big role on how your experience the company. As in any other company there are good and bad managers and Facebook as plenty of both. If you land with a bad manager, your are going to have a very bad experience.4

The fact that Facebook's product touches 1.3 BILLION people on a monthly basis is incredible. To support a community this large, everyone who works at Facebook must be willing to act fast, and often take risk. You are given a lot of autonomy in your role; however, FB is also surprisingly collaborative. I have never worked at a company where literally everyone I work with is equally as smart and hard-working across the board.
There are tons of resources for training and leadership here, but often not enough time to take advantage of everything that is offered.

Great people to work with and interesting problems to solve.
Growing pains - company grew so fast and processes and low to middle management are struggling to keep up.

You get stocks which you can trade for cash instead of waiting for an IPO like in a startup
The amount of work is huge as well as the pressure. The company is huge which means you need to learn a lot and performance evaluations are very stressing1

Good employer. Competitive salaries. Good work culture.
After 2 3 years you might feel the need to move out as the company structure and hierarchy is pretty limited
- 5.023 Dec 2012Software EngineerCurrent Employee
Complete independence of choosing what you want to work on, along with the presence of cutting edge technology and even better people around for an all around technical development of an employee. A very friendly and open environment within the company which makes us feel better while working for Facebook. And also, there are lots of free food and stuff within the company to keep the employees happy and help us focus on making an impact.
Probably, a bit better organizational structure and a better HR team and more clear and clean mentioning of our duties and what we get will be better.
