Great people with collaborative approach toward accomplishing shared vision. Compensation is above market and the company really cares about the well-being of its employees. Sense of humor is fundamental.
Long hours can be the norm as people are fully engaged beyond the typical workday. Promotions and hiring can be a political game.

Flexible working hours and the possibility of a home office
Long working hours and stressful sometimes

The work environment is certainly fast-paced and often chaotic, but everyone manages to keep a level head and make logical, yet innovative decisions, even when under pressure. Most people are pretty young as is reflected in the culture of t-shirts, jeans, video games, and ripsticks. The food is awesome and definitely makes it easier to work longer hours and actually enjoy them. Working cross-functionally is not only accepted, but expected. You won't be confined to your own team, which is nice. Overall, it's definitely the best job I've had so far.
As a pretty young company, policies and best practices change quite often, which can be hard to follow at times. Other than that, there really aren't many cons.1

Facebook has a unique culture that encourages people to be their authentic self and do work they are passionate about. They invest in their people through training, progressive benefits and great perks like free food. Great place to work!
Its a very global and very fast paced which can lead to long hours and having to be 'on' constantly

Push code daily, work with extremely talented engineers, free food, great compensation, and seeing everyone I know use the product
Long hours but Facebook engineers tend to be the type who passionately enjoy their work and build products for fun anyways

- challenging and impactful project with a lot of ownership - great benefits - supportive environment and helpful coworkers and mentors
- not a lot of documentation because of culture of moving fast - many employers are very invested in their work and spend long hours; as a result it can be easy to let work/life balance slip1

Hi, I have been working in the WFM space for more than 5 years now as a Senior Consultant and got an opportunity to interview with Human Force. Does anyone know what the salary range for a Senior Consultant is at this company and any other benefits they offer? Does the company have a good culture and opportunities to grow? Any tips for the interview? Thank you! :)
So not job related but figured some technical people might now. I want to find a google browser extension that translates the language of videos on a browser to English from let’s say French website that plays a series or show and have it close caption in English is this possible ? I’ve tried so many extensions none at the correct captions but google does translate websites now for you which is cool . But won’t translate the video into captions . Any ideas my genius people? 🙂
So I recently got an offer at Tiktok but I’m not actually interested in joining due to their poor WLB. TC is currently 30% higher than what I make. Can I share this with my manager and ask for a counter offer? Counter offer seems pretty common at our company, but they don’t necessarily match the bump exactly, which is fine. Is there a chance that he is taken aback that I’ve been interviewing during work time and kicks me out? Don’t want to take the risk of actually accepting Tiktok…
